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

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

    1. Peggy says:

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

  4. Kex says:

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

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

    I like It…cruel and unusual!

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

    1. Batman says:

      because you can

    how do you get the sweater on?

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

  10. Hanna says:

    I wonder how she got him in it!

  11. Eric says:

    Cold-blooded no longer

  12. Dan says:

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

  13. Kathy Rindhoops says:

    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

  15. Catwoman says:

    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
