Have you ever seen a snake smiling at you? A man has bred a snake that smiles not once or twice but thrice!
Justin Kobylka, a snake breeder in the US accidently bred a ball python with the shape of three smiley face emojis on its body and sold the designer reptile for $6,000 (Rs 4.3 lakh).
Justin has been breeding snakes for two decades, and said he was attempting to breed ball pythons for the color combination of bright golden yellow and white when he ended up hatching a snake with three yellow smiley faces on its scales.The breeder said the snake was born after about eight years of working to breed pythons for the color combination.
Justin said he estimates about one in 20 of the snakes he bred for the color combination would have a smiley face, but the snake is the only one he's ended up with that has three faces on its scales.
A mutation that occurs naturally results in patterns like this, however, it is extremely rare to find a snake like this.
Kobylka said the "emoji ball python" sold for $6,000.
