Gazpacho was adopted by Cheyanne Brubaker after his family was unable to provide for him in the way he required. He took a while to get used to his new existence, but after approximately two weeks, his true personality started to emerge.
According to Brubaker, “He is quite amiable and submissive.” He enjoys exploring and climbing.
One day, Gazpacho was doing his regular exploring when he decided to mix things up. He slithered up to Brubaker — and wrapped himself around her hair like a hair tie. She definitely wasn’t expecting it but was absolutely thrilled that Gazpacho felt safe enough to snuggle up to her like that.
“It was definitely a lovely surprise,” Brubaker said. “I was so glad he feels comfortable enough with me now to climb me!”
Gazpacho has the freedom to go wherever he wants when he’s cuddling with his mom, but for some reason, he always chooses the exact same spot.
In a video about Gazpacho, Brubaker noted, “He constantly gravitates towards my hair.”
Brubaker now encircles Gazpacho’s hair whenever he takes her up. Brubaker wouldn’t have it any other way because it’s his favorite place to hang around.
He normally spends a few minutes up there before wrapping his arms around my neck, according to Brubaker.
Brubaker posted Gazpacho’s beautiful new behavior online in an effort to dispel the myth that snakes are always dangerous. They can be so gorgeous and loving, and it’s likely that Gazpacho posing as a hair tie may have encouraged some individuals to save their own snake.
According to Brubaker, “I was astonished since I thought most people would be afraid by the video owing to several snake-related anxieties, but an overwhelming majority considered him charming. Some folks even thought about perhaps saving their own snake (with proper research, of course). It, in my opinion, significantly lessened the stereotype that all snakes are aggressive and harmful.
Even though Gazpacho’s first home didn’t work out, he’s so happy being a part of his new family, and Brubaker can’t wait to see what kinds of adventures he’ll get into next.
