About This Quiz

Snakes have been around for far longer than most people suspect. For a long while, we believed snakes were about 100 million years old, which is, you know, super old. But then some more fossil evidence suggested snakes have existed for 167 million years, putting them way back in the Jurassic period. That means snakes are some of the oldest creatures on Earth, which is crazy to even think about. They deserve way more respect than they get! But at least a few people know that and choose to share their lives with these primal, incredible animals. Plus, let's be honest, they're super cool, too.

Unlike so many traditional pets, snakes come in some crazy colors and patterns, and they're also lower maintenance than a dog that needs to be walked and played with every day. Snakes are chill. Sure you can't always cuddle with them, but some of them really do enjoy being handled and will happily drape about your neck while you're watching some Netflix or whatever. A snake says a lot about the person who owns it. So much so, in fact, that we bet if you answer some snake questions for us, we can even tell you what you named your snake. Don't believe it?
