“The community was started around 2011-2012, and it all began with my snake Lola, who was very docile, wearing some hats. Soon, more and more people started to post pictures as well, and the page quickly grew large,”Liesbeth Dulcimer, the moderator of Snakes With Hats subreddit and administrator of Facebook group, told Bored Panda in an interview.
“The Snakes with Hats community is now a safe space for both beginners, experienced keepers and reptile lovers in general. We’re currently working hard on a discord server that will launch soon,” she said.
