hydra

a little known fact about the life cycle of the Lernean Hydra. The juveniles are hatched from eggs, taking roughly 9 years to grow to maturity, and on hatching appear to be a slightly larger then normal snake. The age of a juvenile hydra is easily established as it gains 1 head per annual molt until the full adult (nine headed) form is attained.
