A TWO foot California kingsnake has been found under a sink in a Rhyl home.

RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information of a possible owner after the snake, thought to be an escaped pet, surprised a member of the public on Wellington Road on Tuesday, May 14.

The discovery of the non-venomous snake, native to the Western United States and Mexico, follows a 5ft stray royal python being found in Llandudno last week. The RSPCA is also still appealing for information to try and find the owner of the python.

after a California kingsnake was found under a sink in Rhyl.

RSPCA animal collection officer William Galvin said: “This snake is young and healthy and has been taken to a specialist centre while we make enquiries.

“This snake is most likely an escapee so we hope we can track down the owner quickly. The owner of the snake, or anyone with related information, can contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018."

If anyone finds a snake they believe is non-native the RSPCA’s advice is to keep a safe distance, monitor the snake and call the same charity helpline.
