According to Soma Chakraborty, zoologist, the double-headed snake’s belongs to Naja Kautia species.

“This species is also known as Bengal Kharis, it is also known as Kala Naag which is venomous. There is no mythological thing in this case. There are many factors behind the formation of two heads. It might be formed at the time of splitting of the embryo or maybe due to some environmental factors,” said Soma .
