Snake in a Box

A man got more than he bargained for when he decided to peer inside a large box left in the street in Alicante, as it contained a very large and very live snake! Seeing that air holes had been made in the lid of the box the man was concerned that kittens or puppies may have been dumped. The man took the box, snake and all, to the Guardia Civil for its specialist Seprona unit to deal with. The snake was identified as a ladder snake, one of the largest species native to Spain, and is now in the care of experts at Terra Natura.
