Big Beds of Colorful Snakes

October 02, 2014

I'm going to be straight up here and go first person: I don't like snakes. They freak me out. I totally understand how beautiful they are in their prehistoric skin, and they way they move is elegant and interesting (if you like death staring you in the face and slithering quicker than you can run). Having said that... these photos have led me to a new respect for the artistic nature of a snakes skin. That might be it, though. But there is a chance I just conquered a fear...

Photographs by Guido Mocafico, who may be a better man than me.
