St. Louis, MO – A rare two-headed albino rat snake has been returned to the City Museum in downtown St. Louis.

Workers at the Museum's World Aquarium realized it was gone Monday morning.

A Belleville woman called police a short time later to say she'd seen two teens with a two-headed snake.

The boys have been charged. One of them is 18-year old Brandon Smith; the other is a juvenile. They were recently fired from the City Museum after working about a week.
