4. Just a Light Snack

When most people think of a snake having a meal, they likely think of them eating mice, rats, or other small rodents. Believe it or not, snakes in the wild can eat large prey like deer and cattle! 

5. Smol Friend

Movies have made snakes like the anaconda incredibly feared. Not all snakes are as large as an anaconda. Just take a look at this wee Masque Ultramel het Cinder. 

6. Surrealism

This artist took a unique and creative perspective involving two giant green snakes and one unfortunate man. It’s up to the individual to interpret just what the artist was trying to say! 

7. Sleepyhead

Boiga dendrophila is a species of rear-fanged venomous snake in the family Colubridae, also known as the mangrove snake or the gold-ringed cat snake. It is one of the largest species of cat snake, growing to a length of six to seven feet on average. It is regarded as having a mild venom.

8. Adorable Creations

Some people see the beauty in every creature on planet earth. Just take a look at how precious this pink snake is! Except for the eye, the entire thing is made out of clay!

9. Mother-to-Be

Most snakes grow eggs inside of them that they eventually lay. The mother’s body heat or the heat from the atmosphere will thereafter be used to incubate the eggs. If she wants to keep the clutch warm, she can either leave the pile alone or wrap up around it. Sometime later, the eggs hatch.
