A SNAKE measuring 1.6 metres has been caught by police after devouring two swallows.


The large horseshoe snake had fallen from a nearby courtyard onto a roof of a building in Paseo de Reding.


Removing the serpent was particularly difficult due to the roof being made of old wooden planks that could not support the weight of officer.


Capturing the beast, the local officer was bitten on the hand, but fortunately protected by his safety glove.


After being placed into a tank, the animal regurgitated the two birds.


  1. It looks like a Montpellier snake (Malpolon monspessulanus), a slightly venomous colubrid. Quite common. Since the fangs are way in the back of its mouth, one can only be bitten by really doing something dumb.
