The ongoing adventures of Yasiel Puig: He goes to zoo, tangles with snake

As fun as Yasiel Puig is to watch on a baseball field, his off-the-field adventures are pretty fun too. It's like the guy is on a reality show where he goes around the country and experiences new things — like snow or minions or Dale Earnhardt Jr

Puig's latest stop? The Cincinnati Zoo, where he "faced his fear of snakes" and gave us this priceless photo.

Then Puig befriended an elephant. At least we're choosing to believe Puig befriended him. Like Michael Jackson and Ben. Don't act like you'd be surprised if Yasiel Puig up and bought an elephant to hang out with during the offseason.

Want more Puig with animals? We got more.

While Puig's snake pic is great, it doesn't beat his teammate/BFF Hyun-Jin Ryu's reaction to seeing a snake last season.

Take note, Arizona Diamondbacks. You want to keep the Dodgers out of your pool forever. Have actual snakes guard it.
