IF you fancy yourself as a snake charmer, a Royal Python is looking for a new home.

Taz is seven-years-old and although he has some "nervous tendencies" inside his vivarium, he settles quickly in the hands of a confident owner.

The Scottish SPCA are hoping to find him just that and are asking West Fifers to consider taking him in, as he has been with the Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre for more than 75 days.

Dale Christie, assistant centre manager, said: “Taz is a beautiful lad but he still has some nervous tendencies whilst inside of his vivarium. However, when he is out and being handled he settles quickly.

“Taz will need a large vivarium at least 4ft in length with plenty of enrichment and places for him to hide.

“Taz will require an experienced snake owner who has done research into owning this type of snake and understands their needs. A confident owner who will be able to continue his handling and build his confidence would be ideal.”

If you think you can offer a home for Taz to slither into, apply on the Scottish SSPCA website at https://www.scottishspca.org/rehome-a-pet/9649-taz?utm_campaign=taz%20rehome&utm_source=press%20release&utm_medium=refrerral
