While lolcats, grumpy cats, dogs in tights, and animal beards have already conquered the Internet, the latest online pet trend has taken a cold blooded twist.

Rather than cute cats and dogs doing adorable things, images of snakes wearing hats are now littering forums.

While the thought of touching a snake may still send a shiver down many a person’s back, few can deny the hilarity of the images, even if they aren’t quite near the cute levels of Boo the Pomeranian dog.
