A snake was found curled up in the groove of a car door after escaping from his home.

RSPCA animal rescuer Louis Horton was called to a residential care home in Beare Green, Dorking after the snake was spotted slithering across the car park.

Louis said: “The snake slithered inside a parked car and we managed to get the keys and search it. We looked in the engine, underneath and couldn’t find him anywhere. Then, when we looked in the boot we spotted him curled up in the groove along the top of the door.”

Louis took the milk snake into the charity’s care and put posters up in the area. Luckily, it didn’t take long for the snake’s owner to come forward.

Louis said: “It turns out he’d escaped through an open window and gone on the run! He’d been missing for two months.
“It was lovely to take him home and reunite him with his owner.”
