These funny snake puns will have you laughing hisssterically!

Snakes might not be everyone's favorite animal, but you have to admit that they do have a certain...charm. While these reptiles often get a bad rap for their venom, fangs, and slithery persona, we don't think it's fair to judge a snake by its scales. (Unless they're, you know, venomous.)

The best snake puns will warm even the most cold-blooded hearts and potentially change your perspective on these stealthy serpents. At the very least, they're totally hisssterical! Whether you're a purveyor of puns or a devotee of dad jokes, everyone can agree that these one-liners about snakes aren't the most sophisticated—but they might just be cringey enough to keep snakes away from your chicken coop. That's the beauty of pet puns, after all!

Whether you're a fan of rattlesnakes, boa constrictors, or black mambas, the type of snake doesn't matter when it comes to snake puns and jokes. Hiss-tory (which is a snake's favorite subject!) also tells us that you also don't need to be a snake charmer to come up with funny animal puns.
