    The unusual snake had three functioning eyes on its head, and reportedly died mere weeks after it was found in March.

    A peculiar-looking snake that had one eye too many was found by wildlife authorities in Australia on a highway in the country’s north.

    As the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Service explained on its Facebook page, an X-ray scan of the creature’s cranium revealed that it actually had one skull with three functioning eyes rather than two merged skulls.

    According to BBC, the reptile — a baby carpet python nicknamed Monty Python — was found in March and died mere weeks after its discovery.
