Python discovered in baby’s nursery by shocked parents

Viral News | Published:

The snake, which has now been returned to its owners, is named Gozer The Gozerian, after the Ghostbusters villain.

The parents of a five-month old baby were shocked to discover a metre-long python in her room.

The royal python slithered out of the nursery of the family home in Tadworth, Surrey, down the stairs and settled under the sofa, according to the RSPCA.

It was removed by the girl’s uncle and taken to a friend nearby who owns a vivarium, much to the relief of the father of the family, who is scared of snakes.

“I took him into our care but, thankfully, we were able to find his owner and return him.

“It turns out he was called Gozer the Gozerian – named after Ghostbusters – and belonged to the family’s neighbour.

“He’d been missing since May so it was nice to be able to return him home.”

Gozer the Gozerian is the main villain in the original Ghostbusters film, in which he takes the form of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to attack New York City.

She said she did not alert neighbours at the time because she did not want to frighten them.

“Snakes are like little ninjas, it’s amazing how they can escape,” she added,

“Gozer is like Houdini. He’s very naughty but we’re so pleased to have him home.”
