World’s cutest python

World's cutest hair accessory?

I used to be frightened of snakes...but now I’ve grown up I count many herpetologists among my best friends and I have found them one of the most fascinating species to interact with. This baby green tree python, being cared for at the Ark Animal Hospital, made its way into my hair and acted like an impromptu hair tie. Eat your heart out scrunchies!
Extreme close up: note the elegant sheets of skin this little dude has been shedding, just hanging from the branch like a cardigan.
