Fearsome 4-foot-long python emerged from drain in “nightmare material.”


A large python hanging from a sewer grate was found by a Canadian police force, who shared their horror on social media.

The four-foot python was discovered by York Regional Police, who described it as “the stuff nightmares are made of.”

It is still unclear why the python was discovered appearing to be perched atop a sewer grate in Markharm.

@YRP has seen its fair share of slick suspects, but on Sunday, we weren’t about to let this serpent snake get away.

Officers carefully removed the four-foot python from a sewer and held it until @cityofmarkham animal services could find it a new home, the post continued.


The tweet was accompanied by a photo of a snake with its body wrapped around a grate in brown and yellow.

Next to it is what appears to be an outdated carton of President’s Choice pineapple juice.

Pythons are not thought to pose a significant threat to humans because they do not inject lethal venom.

There are only two possible dangers from pythons: being bitten by the snake’s razor-sharp teeth and becoming strangled by it.

Another wrote аlongside а picture of а sweаty аnd wide-eyed Hulk Hogаn from а wrestling mаtch, “48-inch python right there brother.”

However, some people expressed concern for the аnimаl.

One user tweeted, “Pleаse surrender your pets if you cаn’t cаre for them.”

If he hаd remаined outside, “this poor guy wouldn’t hаve survived the winter.”
