Talk about a slithery surprise.
The cleaning staff at the Marriott Residence Inn in Worcester, Mass., discovered a five-foot long python in one of the room's drawers, according to the Telegram & Gazette. Employees called animal control, where the snake was subsequently taken to a pet supply store.
General manager Rod Dzivasen said the snake appeared to be in good health. Officials don't think the snake native to South East was in the room for very long.
“He may be two years old but he’s not an old snake,” Mr. Dzivasen said. “Why on earth they had him in a hotel room is beyond me.”
Police added that the person renting the room is believed to be the snake's owner and had checked out the prior day. It's unlikely that anyone will be charged for abandoning the snake.
