Bling is not exclusive to hip-hop artists and retirees -- not with these animal bling photos, anyway.

These pimped-out poodles and sultry diamond-clad snakes are the creative work of Danish photographer Torkil Gudnason. Dressing up household pets as well as exotic foreign creatures, this jewelry-wearing animal shoot is part of a new ad campaign to promote a line of affluent accessories.

These photos are amazing considering it must have been quite a daunting task to get these animals into such specific poses. The puppies were probably easy enough to manage, but getting a pig to hang a necklace off its tail? That's talent. Stats for Overly Accessorized Animals Trending: Older & Mild
