A woman received a slithery shock upon leaving her house when she ran into a two-foot long Mexican black king snake.

She spotted the lost serpent, which has been named Treacle, in the landing outside her flat in Glenrothes on Monday afternoon before calling the Scottish SPCA.

Animal rescue officer Kieran Smart explained: ‘The lady who found Treacle was rather brave and managed to contain him in a pillowcase until I arrived.

‘Although Treacle was flicking his tail and letting us know he wasn’t best pleased that we’d put an end to his adventure, he soon settled down after a short ride to our centre in the back of my van.
