Is functioning of the two brains co-ordinated sir or decision making is difficult?

According to The Mirror, the non-venomous wolf snake has two fully formed heads, meaning it has four working eyes and two tongues, but only one body. Incredibly enough, the two heads work independently of each other – which also means they were spotted fighting for food. Photographer Rakesh Mohalick added that the two heads working independently would make it harder for the reptile to survive in the wild.
