Apparently some guy in Taiwan taught his snake how to smoke.
I’m not sure how much of this story I trust, and not just because of how ridiculous it sounds. The story identifies the nicotine-addicted snake as Po the pit viper, but the snake in the picture is obviously not a pit viper, which is a venomous subset of snake you would want nowhere near you.
The commenters on the story say it is a Taiwanese beauty snake, and a quick search on Google seems to indicate that is correct.
Either way, this is just wrong.
