We just came across a video of a snake that looks like it’s covered in emojis, and it’s pretty cool. The snake is a Lavender Albino Piebald Ball Python, aka a “Dreamsicle,” and it’s covered in golden yellow accents that look just like our favorite smiley emoticons. And, no. The owner did not paint them on. The pet was totally born this way!

YouTuber Justin Kobylka shared the video of the anomaly back in August, and it’s slowly making its rounds across the web. Many can’t believe that the slithery creature could be so appealing, and we can’t either! We’ve never seen anything like it. It’s definitely curing our fears.

Check out the video of the emoji snake for yourself, below!

According to Kobylka, “Piebalds sometimes have faces in the pattern like this.” But, to see “perfect faces in a Dreamsicle is astronomically rare.”

Mind. Blown.

Turns out, Piebalds make for great pets, as they have non-aggressive personalities and are actually pretty emotional. Who knew that we could have so much in common with the animals? We certainly didn’t.

Not saying that we’re thinking of keeping a Piebald as a pet, or anything. But, these snakes all of a sudden aren’t as frightening as they used to be.
