Video Of Snake Drinking Water Has People Reconsidering Their Hatred Of Them

The Adam & Eve story set up thousands of years of snakey distrust – for sure, it's unsettling to see a creature that can move without at least wiggling something. Lots of us out there might raise an eyebrow at the idea of a snake for a pet since there's no direct playtime mechanism and very little to cuddle. But! Have you seen a snake drink?

Check out the dainty Snake Princesses having their afternoon tea.

Yeah, there's gotta be a whole community out there of folks attempting to rehab the snake image, hence the following photo:

Not talking any of us into actually owning one of these, but boy, that's cute.

So, you know, keep an open mind.
