    Thanks Ladies! A lot of people dislike snakes, but the consensus seems to be that this little guy is impossible to hate.
    I really appreciate all your kind words ;)

    this is,(Asia) the cutest,(& most adorable, sweetest etc) little snake i’ve seen but when Beadling said it fitted her friend as a choker i shuddered!…maybe i need some aversion therapy eg.belly dancing or such with a snake..lol..i have a healthy respect for snakes having encountered them both in the bush & country town where i grew up…BTW, greatly admire the amazing snake bangles beaded by Turkish prisoners during the war. Beadling i DO like your baby blue snake!!!

    I personally wouldn’t wear this around my neck, but my friend has a very unique style, and a snake choker fits into that vibe perfectly!
    Thank you Franny, I too have had many encounters with snakes, and am still not thrilled with the idea of them, but I saw a picture of a green snake, and he was hypoxanthic (meaning no yellow pigment), and he was just too cute to resist re-creating.

    I think you’ll agree.
    BTW, green snakes don’t bite, not even if you harass them to, so this little guy, even in real life, is very friendly :)
