Craig Slithers is Sanjay's best friend/pet. Sanjay and Craig met in a pet store, but Craig is no regular pet. Sanjay and Craig are soul mates, partners in crime, and blood brothers all rolled into one. A master of disguise, Craig fools everyone into thinking he’s a human, even when he’s wearing nothing more than a baseball cap and T-shirt. Only Sanjay (and soon his parents) and his close friends, Megan, Hector and Belle, are aware that he can talk. His incredible squash-and-stretch abilities make him the most physically funny character, allowing him to stretch to any size as well as to eat or contain almost anything. When it comes to his daily adventures with Sanjay, Craig is the gasoline to Sanjay’s fire. Craig is convinced of his own awesomeness, even to the point of self-delusion.


Here is Sanjay's better half. The green colored snake can not only talk, but he can also make muck when he is out and about with his best friend Sanjay. This snake has a personality all of his own. He thinks he is the gift to all, and
Sanjay and Craig- Craig's Laugh

Sanjay and Craig- Craig's Laugh

the only thing that matters to him is the fact that he can turn into anything he wants because he is the master of disguise.


Craig is a green snake with dark green textures on his skin, the inside of his mouth is fully pink, and his tongue is red. In "Laugh Quake," it's revealed that Craig can move his tongue up and down like a puppet would.


Ever since their chance meeting in a pet store, Craig and Sanjay have been the best of friends. Craig is convinced he's the coolest guy (err, snake) around, and he tends to exaggerate when he gets excited. He's also a master of disguise and can turn into pretty much anything, including a human! But shhh!! Only Sanjay and his closest friends know Craig's secret.

  • Craig is likely based on a boa constrictor, but has been seen squirting a venom-like substance from his fangs, a trait seen mostly in Spitting Cobra.
