New Delhi: An amazing snake has been found with markings that look just like a smiley face emoji. The snake is a lavender albino piebald Ball Python – usually found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The snake is owned by Justin Kobylka who lives in Georgia, US, with his wife Joy, son Graer, and daughter Aliya.
Piebald snakes sometimes have faces in a pattern like this, however having three perfect faces is rare.
The distinctive pattern of pigmented spots on an unpigmented background is determined by the genes of the animal.
Other creatures that display the piebald pattern include horses, dogs, birds, cats and pigs. Ball pythons are non-venomous constrictors found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
They are very popular as pets because of their size and temperament.
