UK snake? (1 Viewer)


Birding for fun
Just been sent this photo of a snake crossing the road in East Hertfordshire. I write a nature column for the local newspaper and have no idea on this one. Looks to be around 6 foot long as the lane here is 12 foot wide. Not aware of female grass snakes being white, or do they go this colour whilst sloughing? Any suggestions gratefully received. Many thanks

Yep. Burmese Python I reckon, there's a popular captive pale morph with pale yellow markings. Don't suppose it will survive the winter but there might be some surprised small animals before then.
