I was in CAYTV this morning and I happened to open a video of a baby who look like a snake, it said that that baby was born in Jordan and she died after an hour. I don’t know if I’m late or not but for those who did not see it yet, you can view it in this link. Accordingly, when the mother of that baby learned that the baby she was conceiving was a girl she told her friends that she is going to have a snake soon since she don’t want to have a baby girl anymore, so she called her fetus inside her womb as snake, so when she gave birth, her baby looks like a snake!
