Justin Kobylka Spends 8 Years Breeding An Emoji Ball Python

What happens when you’re really into snakes and you’ve got a ton of time on your hands? An emoji snake, that’s what. Justin Kobylka breeds snakes with unique patterns and sells them at his store in Toccoa, Georgia – often for large amounts of money. After 8 years of trying, he has created an Emoji Ball Python that appears to have 3 yellow/orange smiley emojis on its skin. Technically, the snake is a white piebald python with patterns caused by recessive mutations that do occur naturally, but are extremely unlikely to happen in the wild. The rare snake could be sold for at least $4,500. To put that in perspective, you could head to PetSmart and buy a normal ball python for $40. But Justin told Business Insider that he will keep this particular animal due to it’s ‘uniqueness’. No word on whether the unnamed snake with happy faces on its back is, indeed, an optimistic fellow.
