Snake massages “relaxing”… Oh, yeah?

Visitors to a Surrey theme park have been given the chance to enjoy a relaxing massage – from a royal python.
They were offered the snake massages to help them relax before going on a new ride, called Kobra, at Chessington World of Adventures.

“Snake massages are said to produce a feeling of relaxation as the muscles in their bodies stimulate blood flow and massage tense joints,” said a spokeswoman.

Police say a driver blamed a car crash [in] Connecticut on two pet baby snakes that he said escaped from his pants pockets as he was driving.

Hartford police Sgt. Christene Mertes says Angel Rolon claimed he lost control of his sports utility vehicle on Monday when the snakes slithered near the gas and brake pedals and he and a passenger tried to catch them.

No word on why he had snakes in his pocket…

Surprise! There’s a 6ft snake in the toilet

More at 6ft snake found in toilet

A six [foot long] snake has been found in the toilet bowl of a 10th floor flat in Australia. It’s believed the black-headed python had been living in the plumbing of the Darwin building for some time.

Snake expert Chris Peberdy rescued it after the tenants of the apartment got the shock of their lives, the Northern Territory News reports.

“When I saw it I was pretty shocked,” Mr Peberdy said. “It’s one thing in the Territory to have a green frog in the toilet … but not a six-foot python.”
