The snake is a four-year-old boa constrictor. It is approximately 5ft long with black and green camouflage markings and yellow underneath.
Whilst the snake is non-venomous and described as normally very placid, it may become aggressive if it feels threatened and the public are advised not to approach it but to contact Merseyside Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
