Not only does this California Kingsnake at the Moscow Zoo have two heads, it’s also an albino. Zoo officials say two-headed snakes are a one-in-a-million occurrence and usually don’t survive in the wild.

“The Beatles had different ways to amuse themselves during long journeys. They would read, play games or mess about with Ringo’s tape recorder. When John wasn’t buried in a book he would often write or doodle. This time I was intrigued by what he was drawing. I looked over his shoulder and to my amusement he was defacing a picture of the group.” - Robert Whitaker
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
