Is Serpens Catus, the ‘Amazon Snake Cat’ real?

A viral picture of a cat, which is apparently called Serpens Catus or the ‘Amazon Snake Cat’ has gone viral on both TikTok and Twitter leading many people to question whether the creature is real.

The image in question features a picture of what appears to be a regular household cat, complete with a yellow and black pattern on its fur, not dissimilar to that which we would associate with a snake.

However, the pattern on its fur does resemble the scales that we often see on the snake, making for a truly striking image.

In the original post about the cat, it is claimed that it is the “rarest species of feline on earth” and can only be found in the most difficult-to-access areas of the Amazon rainforest.

    You can tell by the nose on the animal that it is computer generated art using prompts to combine a cat and a snake or a cat with bright yellow spots.
