A f**ken three-eyed snake has been discovered in Australia
Crikey! We’re going to assume you know that most snakes have two eyes. Then we’re going to guess that you’ve heard of the one-eyed trouser snake, but we’ll be f**ken surprised if you’ve heard of the three-eyed carpet snake from Humpty-Doo in the Northern Territory. That’s right, ya larrikins, we’re heading to the outback for this one. Come along; just avoid the crocs, avoid the potholes, and avoid the serial killers…
Righto, here we are in Humpty-f**ken-Doo, home to a renowned pub not far from Darwin.
If you don’t know much about Darwin, it’s the big smoke in that Hugh Jackman movie where he was the all-singing, all-droving, all-punching ‘Awesome Aussie’ of Hollywood.
Anyway, we’re telling you this because that’s where scientists just found a three-eyed snake. The curious little bewdy was found on the Arnhem highway, and he straight up looks like something from a bloody Tool album cover.
Check him out.
It was found by the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife service, who later posted the find on Facebook.
The three-eyed snake warns The Dry is coming!
Our Rangers found a three-eyed snake on the Arnhem Highway near Humpty Doo just out of Darwin. It was a juvenile, approximately 40cm long.
The snake is peculiar as an x-ray revealed it was not two separate heads forged together, rather it appeared to be one skull with an additional eye socket and three functioning eyes.
It was generally agreed that the eye likely developed very early during the embryonic stage of development. It is extremely unlikely that this is from environmental factors and is almost certainly a natural occurrence as malformed reptiles are relatively common.
Unfortunately, the little mutant carked it not long after rangers found him. Yeah, nah, having a third eye pried open on your nogging tends to f**k the geography of your face up – and that makes it hard to feed. For a snake, who can only eat whole food, that’s a bloody disaster.
Ranger Ray Chatto reckons, “It’s remarkable it was able to survive so long in the wild with its deformity, and he was struggling to feed before he died last week.”
It’s a shame the little bugger didn’t make it. Carpet pythons like him get to a decent size. It would have been grouse to see a big f**ken snake with three eyes.
Final thought: Some people reckon this snake is cute. We don’t know about cute, but we reckon he’s pretty f**ken rad nonetheless. What do you fellas reckon?
