Woman surprised to find boa constrictor in boot of newly-bought car

A Berkshire woman was admiring the £200 second-hand Volkswagen Golf she had just bought, when she opened the boot and saw a three-foot boa constrictor staring up at her.

23-year-old Charlie Wise from Thatcham thought the snake was a toy at first, but when the reptile flicked its tongue she screamed and slammed shut the boot.

Charlie rang the car's previous owner who said he had lost the snake two months ago but did not want the animal anymore.

Local animal charity, Berkshire Reptiles Centre, came and collected the snake who survived the ordeal unscathed.
