It’s the little things in life that make all the difference.
So was this a ‘little’ thing or a ‘big’ thing?
That will depend on your perspective. And on how well you handle snakes.
It was a seniors’ soccer game.
Just getting out for a little exercise on a cloudy day.
Nothing to write home about, right?
Sure, that’s how it would NORMALLY play out.
But today was a different story. Because, this time, nature reared its head and gave people a fright.
Not just ANY nature, either.
It was THIS guy:
Animal control was called to pick him up.
The weird thing was… they found an African ball python snake… in Toronto!
According to the Toronto Zoo, these kinds of snakes are usually found in grasslands, shrub lands and open forests. The pythons are typically found near open water so they can cool themselves during hot weather, which may make sense when it comes to this little guy at Cherry Beach. These are non-venomous snakes, and often feed on birds, small mammals, and eggs. —DailyHive
The guys playing soccer barely flinched.
But when the people who first published story heard there had been a 5 foot python loose in their city, they were freaking out about it.
They should maybe stay clear of Florida…
…where the snakes get considerably larger.
Two python hunters from Florida nabbed a massive 15-foot snake during a South Florida python pilot program.
Nicholas Banos and his hunting partner Leonardo “PythonKing” Sanchez made the impressive catch over the weekend in the Everglades as part of a new program that allows licensed python hunters to capture the deadly snakes.
Banos told WSVN that he and Sanchez caught the snake on the first day of the program, but admitted that it was a little difficult wrangling the snake in. —NYDailyNews
