Anonymous: Do all snakes have that kind of iridescent sheen to them? I've rarely seen them in real life, but a while back I went to a Pride festival and someone brought their snake (a red-tailed boa, I think? Didn't quite catch the name in all the noise) and it was just the prettiest thing. So soft and docile, with a more rainbowy cover than Noodle in your icon.

fuckyeahballpythons:

I’m going to say that if this person was at Pride and the least bit clever, they probably brought some kind of Rainbow Boa.

But some degree of iridescence is actually a common quality in many of species of snakes with unkeeled scales. Even Noodle can have some rainbows bouncing off her back after a shed.
