Amazing photographs of snakes like you’ve never seen before

yellow-snakeMost people fear snakes and don't want to even look at them. Still they are fascinating reptiles in different colors and lengths. The photographer Guido Mocafico saw the beauty in them, and took amazing shots of them that it almost looks like detailed paintings.

    To those people who are like “THATS CREEPY / scary”. Get a life, if you aren’t interested in seeing photographs of snakes, simply don’t look at them. Bad mouthing something is not necessary. Keep your hateful comments to yourself.

    These photos are amazing.

  9. Jack says

    Beautiful! Wish I could have a few of those, those are some gorgeous kings and boas. I hope whoever took these took care for the animals’ welfare. Love snakes!

    To “samsamw_cool” Those are green mamba’s. But they do have a blue cast to them. If you like blue snakes, check out the red tail green rat snake. Some are very blue. Ours is very blue with a grey tail. Also check out the Blue Beauties. They have a pattern but are blue and black. :o)

    These pictures were hard for me to look at and Im sure Im going to be paranoid for the rest of the day but they are beautiful.

    So they’re just a bunch of snakes in a rectangle shape.

    Who cares?

    If you’re gunna give me amazing pics of snakes, have them actually doing something amazing rather than being all boxitronic. Fail pictures. Repetitive too.
