An 18-foot python escapes from captivity and winds up on a Chandlers Ford roof, Residents have expressed their astonishment after a python measuring 5.5 meters in length and 18 feet in length was seen attempting to enter a residence.
It was reported that a Burmese python that had escaped from a nearby property was spotted attempting to enter a home in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, by climbing onto the roof and entering the building through an upstairs window.
When it first made its appearance early on Tuesday, the reptile sparked widespread fear.
It was eventually found and brought back to its rightful owner by a nearby resident who had noticed it had been lost.
Jenny Warwick stated that she looked out the window around 5:15 BST and noticed the enormous yellow snake on her neighbor’s roof, but she did not realize what it was until she saw it trying to get into the upstairs window. Jenny said she did not realize what it was until she saw it trying to get in.
In her words: “When I looked over, I noticed them trying to poke it out, but it ended up falling on their car. It was massive. \s” People walking by stopped and stared, as though they couldn’t believe what they were seeing.”
Linda Elmer, who recognized the snake, stated that she was awoken at 7:00 in the morning by concerned neighbors beating on her door in an effort to locate the owner of the animal.
In her words: “Everyone was in a state of fear.
“I was the only one willing to pick him up; no one else did. It was really challenging due to the fact that he is a large snake, but I was able to make it down the road with an 18-foot python wrapped around me and knock on the door of the owner.
“I believe that it came as a surprise to all of us.
“He’s stunning, and Burmese are known for their calm demeanor. They are not aggressive snakes, to begin with, and the fact that I have handled one in the past made me feel quite comfortable doing so now.”
In the past, the RSPCA has recommended owners keep snakes securely housed during hot weather since the higher temperatures cause them to become very active and increase the likelihood that they will escape from their owners’ care.
