The photo is real, but the snake is not.

Upon closer inspection, it is clear that dog in the photo is licking a snake statue.

Let’s take a look at the photo being circulated:

When we take a closer look at the snake in the photo, it becomes apparent that the segments of the body are actually all attached, as one would expect from a statue of this kind:

Bottom Line

The photo above does not depict a dog licking a real snake. It is actually licking a snake statue. It has been circulated as an example of beautiful gestures that occur in the world. It is unlikely that a real snake would allow a dog to lick its head in this manner.

    Do you think they put sugar on the statue to get the dog to lick.
