A local, Prashanth MN, said that similar skin was found nearly six months ago. Villagers constructed a temple where the skin was found believing that the place has some special powers. "Now, the snake skin has appeared near the temple itself. A temple staffer, who was cleaning the premises in the morning, spotted the skin in the field of a villager named Balappa," Prashanth was quoted by TOI as saying.

Snake experts, however, ruled out the possibility of multi-headed snake's existence. "There are two-headed snakes, but they too are very rare. Just like conjoined twins among humans, some snakes will have two heads," expert Ramu P told the newspaper.
