I thought was surprising as I have never seen this event happen. Has any related snake events happened to you. What would you do if this happened to you?

I saw this story yesterday.

My question is, how in the hell did this kind of snake get in to her water pipe.
Those snakes are not indigenous to Maine.

Once again, it was probably some stupid as teenager or early 20-something that thought it would be 'cool' to own such an exotic snake to scare girls and impress his buddies.
Then irresponsibly through it in a river or sewer when it started to get too big.
This is a major problem in South Florida, Everglades as well as with the snake head fish in many lakes in the US.

So I read the thread title and wondered who this S-A-N-K-E guy was.
A Hoffa type I've never heard of, perhaps, disappeared, then found in a washing machine? Another money-laundry crime perhaps.

I once called my wife from an enroute stop while non-revving home. She informed me that there was a snake in our living room and would I please hurry. It turned out to be a recently whelped California king snake and I released it on my own property about fifty yards from the house.

There was a report of a cobra in the under-deck area of a Huey in Vietnam. That area is constructed of crossing metal web with lightening holes in them, so the serpent could go just about anywhere it wanted belowdecks. Problem is, the cyclic control mixing levers were mounted under there and had spaces not tolerant of snake carcasses. (carcii?)

About twenty years ago, the Reno newspaper ran a photo someone took out at Pyramid lake of a good sized python. Apparently someone had released their ill-considered pet there. Set it free, as it were, in a place that averages 180 days of frost a year. I'm sure it didn't survive the winter.



Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

Mods please fix my spelling error.

My family knows how to deal with these as my brother in law use to own two Anacondas and two pythons before giving them to the zoo. Would like to know how it got there.

Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 3):

I'm sure it was someone's "pet" that was let loose when it got too big to handle. Reticulated Pythons, while strikingly beautiful snakes, don't make very good pets because they get enormous... far too large for a single person to handle. Unless I'm much mistaken, it is now illegal to own a reticulated python in the US for exactly that reason. My local zoo has several specimens of reticulated pythons, and in the corner of each one's cage is a sign stating that the zoo no longer accepts donations of these snakes.
