Corn snake discovered on Dorset footpath


A metre-long snake has been found on a footpath in Dorset.
The adult reptile, which is a pinkish white colour with orange spots, is thought to be an albino corn snake, Dorset Police said.
The non-venomous reptile was found by a member of the public off Glenwood Road in Ferndown on Sunday.
Anyone with information about the snake, which is currently being looked after by a member of the public, is asked to contact police.
The corn snake (Pantherophis guttatus guttatus), or red rat snake, is a North American species that subdues its prey by constriction.
They can grow up to about 6ft (1.8m) in length.
