It's hard to believe that something so dangerous can be so beautiful, Mark Laita's Serpentine series captures the magnificent elegance of some of the world's deadliest snakes.

The Los Angeles-based photographer traveled all over the world in order to get an up close and personal encounter with a variety of the slithering reptiles. From the Honduran Milk Snake to the Black Pakistan Cobra, these photographs are more of an artistic statement than a zoological documentation. Every snake within the series is a unique entity, both in terms of color pattern, size and the shape in which it is photographed in.

Looking through Mark Laita's Serpentine series is gorgeous to behold. It is a privilege to able to look at such magnificent and rare creatures from a safe distance. Stats for Alluring Venomous Vipers (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Chilly
