A snake who went missing a year-and-a-half ago has been reunited with his owner after he was rescued from a drainpipe by the RSPCA.
Animal welfare officer John Littlewood was called to a home in Wirral after the householder found the corn snake slithering out of plastic piping running to their washing machine on Wednesday.
After asking around the neighbourhood it was discovered the escapee corn snake, named Heston, had disappeared from his vivarium from a neighbour's home a few doors up 18-months-ago.
“It is incredible to think that this snake, Heston, went missing from his vivarium more than a year ago. His owner really did not expect to see him again.
“It is very unusual for a snake to survive on his own in the open for so long as snakes have very particular environment needs - especially when it comes to temperature."
“It is great to have Heston back. We just wonder where he has been all this time."
