When you hear the word "cute," snakes are probably the last thing to come to your mind. There's just something so cunning about them that we're unable to look past their slick skin and venomous fangs to see their true beauty.

However, Bored Panda is here to prove to you that these scary animals can actually be charming and adorable too! We've collected some of the cutest pictures, from tiny baby reptiles to grown-up serpents wearing quirky hats, in hopes that this list might just help you conquer your fear of snakes, called ophidiophobia. Though to choose the most adorable ones from more than 3.000 known species of snakes was a hard task, we think we succeeded in our mission.

Keep in mind that snakes can be very dangerous so you should never try handling a wild one, no matter how cute it might look! And though only 600 of the 3.000 are venomous, the choice to touch one might be the first and the last in your life. Snakes are best to be adored from a distance. All warnings aside, scroll down to check the cute snakes!
