Snake experts have ridiculed existence of any such creature having seven heads. They have reportedly said that in the world there is no record of any such snake with so many heads. The maximum one could ever find was a snake with two heads, which is also rare. The way human beings have conjoined twins, some snakes have two heads. The process of a snake or any other reptile shedding its skin is called ecdysis. They do this to remove any parasite that might have grown on their skin. They go through the process of shedding their old skin every now and then.
