Corn snake slithers out of cereal box in Sheffield

A man from Sheffield had a fright when he sat down to eat his breakfast - and a snake slithered out of the cereal box and into the dishwasher.

RSPCA animal collection officer Katie Hetherington was called to the man’s home in Mona Road, Sheffield, to rescue the snake on Saturday morning.

The snake has been identified as a corn snake - a species native to North America, although they are one of the most commonly kept exotic pets in this country.

This snake is believed to be someone’s missing pet so posters have been put up in the local area to find the owner.
