Hotel staff got the shock of their lives after finding 40 PYTHONS in a room. The snakes – some up to four-and-a-half feet long – were rescued from plastic storage bins. The manager of the Canadian hotel where they were discovered said they belonged to a couple who had checked into the room for a night. Police removed the reptiles while the two guests were out for the evening and took them to an animal shelter. A spokesman said the animals were in distress but expected to recover.
