A Camden woman got a slithery surprise when she discovered a python in her flower garden.

WABI-TV reports the snake appeared healthy but cold as it snoozed among the woman's summer blooms. She called Camden Police, who took the four-foot long python to Thomaston's animal shelter. Camden's shelter isn't set up to accommodate snakes.

Now, the shelter is looking for the snake's owner so they can send it home. If you or someone you know is missing a python, call Pope Memorial Humane Society at 594-0254.
