17 Hypnotically Colorful And Ridiculously Good Looking Snakes

If you ever were to see one of these snakes in real life, the first instinct would probably be to run away -- and quickly. But if you stopped for a moment longer, you could appreciate just how magnificent their coloring can be. Some of these snakes straight-up just look like dragons. Especially bush vipers that have dragon-like scales and a dragon-shaped head.

Snakes are some of the most misunderstood creatures despite there being lots of snake facts and information available. People seem to have a natural fear and avoidance of snakes, even though some, like the zombie snake, are just big goofy nope-ropes that won't even hurt anyone. 

Snakes in general are fairly common all over the world, as it is believed snakes evolved from burrowing lizards, which were already world-wide. Some snakes are extremely rare, and seeing them is a real treat for enthusiasts. Just be sure to keep a safe distance, and make sure to do that funny dance everyone does if you touch the snake's skin and it grosses you out.

Many people don't think lizards are cute, but Amun can prove them wrong. He's a 4 year-old leopard gecko who's got the cutest smile ever. He had a hard start in life, but after I rescued him from the horrible sitaution at his petstore, he really came into his own. He is very social, and loves to climb around on our shoulders. I do think his smile has gotten larger since he came home.

Mammals aren't the only cute creatures out there! Baby Crocodiles are arguably very cute, however, most of them grow up to be humongous, deadly predators. Are Crocodiles cute reptiles, or creepy monsters? What do you squeeps think?
