Snakes aren’t always the creatures that most people want to spend time with. This is understandable: they’re not as cuddly or fun-loving as dogs, they don’t sing like birds, and they’re not going to purr in your lap like a cat.

There’s one snake out there, though, that actually might be as happy-go-lucky as any of the above pets! Belonging to Justin Kobylka, the snake in question is a lavender albino piebald ball python, otherwise known as a “dreamsicle” for her uncanny resemblance to the popular orange creamsicle ice cream.

Yet Justin Kobylka’s lavender albino piebald ball python might make you use an emoji more like this one:


Why’s that, you ask? Well, just take a look at her!

That’s about as close to “cute” as most snakes will ever get. As it turns out, it’s not unheard of for piebald pythons to have “faces” on their scales, but ones this perfectly formed are extremely rare!
