Two-headed dragon-tailed green snake

This rare and well-preserved Two-headed Chinese dragon-tailed green snake was originally collected in the Southwestern regions of China. This species of snake (dragon-tailed snake) has a flattened and wide tail-end, which resembles the Chinese dragon’s tail-end. Therefore, this snake is considered a messenger of snake god in China. People consider it a good omen when they see this dragon-tailed snake (even it does not have multiple heads). Locals also have been producing traditional Chinese medicines by using this rare animal for many centuries. Needless to say, in feng shui, the Chinese style Dragon (not the Western style dragon) is one of the most auspicious symbols to have in a home in China and many Asian nations even today.
