30 Brand New Snake Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
The first image in this collection of free snake coloring sheets for kids has a rather nervous-looking snake coiled around a branch.
What colors do you think you’ll use to get this series of snake printables started? I would use some nice bright greens and yellows for this first snake, but I’ll look forward to seeing what you decide on!
This snake is enjoying a relaxing day in the bushes. Look at how it coils around itself and raises its head up.
What colors will you choose for this serpent? Maybe try some green and brown for his scales. And don’t forget his tongue.
A bright red would look great. You could also give him yellow eyes to help him spy yummy bugs and mice down below. Grab your crayons and get creative with this coiled critter.
There’s something you don’t see every day in this snake coloring printable, a two-headed snake! I wonder if that would make it harder or easier to catch prey?
I think that for this two-headed guy, it would be fun to come up with two separate color schemes and alternate them for the snake, starting at each head.
Do you think you’ll take this approach or try out something else for this unusual snake?
Our third snake coloring sheet has one swimming through the water. I bet that there will probably be a lot of blues and greens for the watery background of this image.
For that reason, if I were coloring in this snake I would use complementary colors such as red and orange for the snake to really help it stand out!
This snake has curled itself into a tight spiral, positioning to pounce on passing prey. It has heat-sensing pits on its face to detect warm-blooded animals.
And its arrow-shaped head and sharp fangs make it a formidable predator.
What colors will you use for this snake? Consider using red and black like coral snakes that use their bright colors to warn they are venomous.
Or make it green like some vipers that can camouflage in the leaves.
This next snake coloring sheet has a rather vicious-looking one for you to color in! Dangerous snakes will sometimes have very bright coloring as a warning to other animals.
Because of that, would use a lot of red and yellow for this angry guy to show that he means business! What colors are you thinking for this striking snake?
We have a much friendlier looking snake in this next snake printable. He certainly looks friendlier than the last one at least! I would use much milder colors for this much more laid-back snake if I were coloring it in.
For example, I would use some nice blues, greens and purples to color him in.
I know that any colors you choose will look great, though!
This snake is slithering through the grass with its tongue out. It has a long, slender body with small scales.
It looks like it is curious and alert. What colors will you use to make this snake look more realistic?
Did you know that snakes can smell with their tongues? They flick their tongues in and out to collect scent particles from the air and then transfer them to a special organ in their mouths called the Jacobson’s organ.
This helps them locate their prey and avoid predators.
It would be hard to take the snake in this next snake coloring page too seriously, as it has quite a silly look on its face!
This is another one where I feel that some nice bright and wacky colors would suit this silly looking snake perfectly. I can’t wait to see how you color in this funny snake!
There’s another slightly more realistic snake for this snake coloring sheet. I said for an earlier coloring page that some snakes use bright colors as a warning, but some others go the opposite direction with their coloring.
These ones will have colors that camouflage them in their surroundings and make it easier to catch prey.
I would color in this snake with various earthy browns to suggest that it’s blending into the dirt of its environment.
This long snake has coiled its lengthy body into a relaxed spiral as it rests. Although this serene serpent looks so peaceful, it is always alert. With its broad head, it looks like a strong and confident snake.
How would you color this in? Try using calm blues and purples to capture its chilled-out vibe. Did you know some snakes like rat snakes can reach up to 8 feet long?
Our next snake printable has a really cute snake for you to color in! For this cuter snake, I think you could use some of your favorite colors that make you happy to fill this one in.
What colors make you happy to look at? I bet that using them for this snake would look amazing!
This snake coloring page has one that looks like it’s ready to strike! If I were coloring in this picture I would use some red and yellow for the background to highlight the danger of this moment.
What colors will you use for the background and for the snake itself?
After a bit of an intimidating snake, we have another slightly goofier one for you in this snake coloring sheet.
I think that for a snake-like this it would be well suited to some bright, cartoony colors to suit the look of this snake.
This could also be a good time to use some brighter mediums like colored pens and pencils to give the colors a sharper look. What art mediums do you think that you will use for this silly snake?
I wouldn’t want to be on this snake’s bad side, as it’s looking not very happy in this snake printable! For this coloring sheet, maybe you could try out some watercolors to color in this snake
Watercolors are good for softer looking images, and it would help it look like this snake is set up for camouflage.
This next snake coloring page has a snake that looks to me like it’s pretty happy to meet you!
This cute snake looks like a baby one, and for that reason I would again use some lighter, softer colors to fill in this image.
I’m thinking that some lighter greens and blues would look really nice on this one! What do you think you’ll use?
I’ve heard of having flowers in a pot, but never snakes! These two snakes are hanging out in a flowerpot, and I don’t think that would be a nice surprise for a gardener to find.
Watercolor paints are great for scenes with a lot of nature in them, so seeing as this image is dominated by the background I think that it would be nice to use some for this image!
This next snake coloring sheet has another cute looking snake curled tightly around a branch and looking ready for a nap.
Tree snakes will often have a green color scheme, so maybe you could use some for this cute little snake!
It would also look great if you used your favorite bright colors, so I can’t wait to see what you decide on!
You normally don’t want to meet a rattlesnake when out in the wild as they can be quite dangerous, but this one looks pretty happy and friendly.
This happier looking snake would look great with a mixture of different mediums! Maybe you could use a combination of crayons, colored pens, pencils or markers for a dynamic look to this happy snake!
We have a fearsome cobra to color in for this next snake coloring printable. There isn’t much detail on this snake, so i would use earthy, more muted coloring for this snake.
You could use browns and blacks to suggest that this is a snake that lives in a more desert environment.
How do you think you will color in this snake?
This next free snake coloring page has one with more details on it than the previous snake.
I mentioned that tree snakes will often be colored with a green color scheme, so you could go for that look but don’t feel limited to that!
The only limit is your imagination, so feel free to use any of your favorite colors for this sweet looking snake.
I think that we may just have another baby snake in this snake coloring sheet! This one looks like it’s high up in the canopy of a forest and looking down at everything below.
For this snake page, I would use a nice light blue for the sky to suggest that it’s a beautiful day outside for this adventurous guy.
Finishing it off with some beautiful greens for the leaves of the tree would really finish off this image nicely!
This next snake coloring page has another happy looking one coiled up on the ground. Maybe it just spotted a tasty insect that it could catch for lunch!
Maybe for this snake, you could try out some different kinds of paints to color it in. Acrylic paints especially are nice for getting in some brighter and sharper colors to an image.
I hope we’ll see what you decided on by seeing this image shared to our Facebook page once it’s done!
Snakes can sense vibrations through their bones. They have special bones in their lower jaws that pick up vibrations from the ground or the water. This helps them find their prey and avoid danger.
The snake in this snake coloring page looks like it is sensing some movement around it. It is wrapped around a branch with some leaves.
However you color it, this snake is prepared to ambush its next meal. So watch out. And have fun bringing this sneaky snake to life with your coloring skills.
We have a mother snake sitting atop her eggs and looking very proud and happy for this snake coloring sheet.
This is a warm and happy picture, so I would use equally warm and happy colors for this mother snake.
If I were coloring in this snake, I would use reds, oranges and purples, but what colors do you think you’ll use?
Despite the fact that the snake in this snake printable is another cobra, this one doesn’t look very scary at all!
In fact, it looks quite friendly, so this is another one that I would personally use some nice bright colors on. Which of your favorite art mediums will you use for this snake?
We’ve had some pretty young looking snakes in this collection of snake coloring pages, but this one has to be the youngest one as it’s just hatching from an egg!
As I mentioned in a previous page, I think that milder colors suit these younger snakes nicely.
For that reason, I think that pairing some lighter colors with some watercolor paints would fit this newborn snake perfectly!
There’s another less threatening looking cobra to color in for this snake coloring sheet! There are a lot of great details on this happy looking snake, so I would use some wonderful bright colors on this one.
I think that the more different colors you can fit onto this snake the better, so I’m sure this will be a wonderfully colorful snake to behold!
We have one more tree snake for you to color in for this snake printable, and it’s just as cute as some of the other ones we’ve had to color in!
Do you think you’ll use greens for this snake or will you use some other bright colors for this little snake? We hope we’ll get to see how you color in this tree snake!
The final image we have in this series of free snake coloring pages for kids has another friendly, cute looking little snake.
I think that for this happy looking little guy, it would look really nice to use some bright and vibrant colors.
With that in mind, I think you should use all of your favorite colors on this one, even if they may be unrealistic!
Who’s to say we shouldn’t have a snake with blues, pinks or purples? How will you finish off this final snake image?
