    This is so awesome. He looks like a Richard Scarry character.

    I can’t see my vimes snake taking to a sweater :(

  • Katie T.

    This is cute, yet terrifying, because I’m scared of snakes.

    • Peggy

      I am right there with you. my husband would be shocked that I even looked at something that included a snake!

  • Kex

    Okay, I can’t deny that that’s adorable, but, um, snakes are ectotherms. Does she warm him up before threading him through it?

  • j@loveland

    He seems to be very happy! He’s probably wondering why it is pink!

  • Lemonstreetbigildyboo

    I like It…cruel and unusual!

    Snakes produce no body heat. Therefor, a sweater is useless. Why

    • Batman

      because you can

  • anne123

    how do you get the sweater on?

  • Mark Maloof

    Agreed that other for looks/hilarity value, a sweater for a reptile is useless (now, an electric blanket, that’s another story….)

  • Hanna

    I wonder how she got him in it!

  • Eric

    Cold-blooded no longer

  • Dan

    This is dumb, snakes feel through vibrations, your making it partially blind and nervous.

  • Kathy Rindhoops

    I like that the snake is called Milky Joe. Nice Mighty Boosh reference. :)

    Or Alternatively you could warm the sweater up if its cold outside of his enviroment and give him a warm snuggly place to kick it xD

  • Catwoman

    My 7 foot boa would totally love a sweater-not to mention she would look adorable! She likes to snuggle in bed with my boyfriend or warm up next to the computer monitor :D
