Snake 'big enough to eat a small child' found in park

A 6 ft-snake found in a park was luckily "too cold" to attack anyone.

A snake big enough to gobble a baby was found in Danson Park in Bexleyheath, London on Friday (06.11.15).

The 6 ft boa constrictor was found by the RSPCA and taken to a specialist reptile centre, but the usually warm-blooded creature was "too cold" to cause any harm.

RSPCA inspector Anthony Pulfer said: "It was lucky this poor Boa constrictor was found because it is far too cold for him to be outside.

"When I picked him up he was very cold and lethargic."

The animal rescue team are trying to find out where the snake came from as the area isn't close to many houses and they fear he was simply abandoned.
