Snake owners get creative with dressing their pets.
Trigger Warning: If you have a phobia of snakes or feel anxiety at the mere mention of them, reader discretion is advised.
Watching cute animals is perhaps one of the most soothing and joyful things most humans love to do. From giggling at cute puppies and dogs acting derpy, to smiling at cats that become spastic at the most innocuous things, and scrolling through plenty of videos of various animals donning adorable clothes and more, we can't help but feel a sense of happiness. But one non-human species that many might not expect could look downright sweet are snakes. This is understandable given that these slithering reptiles tend to inspire fear and sometimes even disgust. However, how does one feel any of those emotions when a hat is put on them?
In fact, there is an entire Reddit community dedicated to showing off their charming side by placing hats on top of their heads. Named r/SnakesWithHats, this Reddit community has made it their goal to share pictures of snakes wearing caps, bonnets, beanies, fedoras, and a lot more.
One of the moderators of the subreddit, DisasterLlama, told BoredPanda in an interview, "Snakes are such beautiful creatures! They are feared because they bite and some are venomous, but the same is the case for animals. Mainstream media perpetuates this fear as well. I can’t speak for everyone, but I think people who get snakes as pets recognize that these Noodles are no different than any other house pets, excepting perhaps that they don’t travel well on slippery surfaces. Plus they have great personalities, are adorable, and, as I said previously, can be easy to take care of depending on the type. They also make great long-term companions."
So let's see 20 pictures of the normally dangerous (and rightly so) snakes wearing a variety of hats looking, dare I say, cute :
