    Poor thing

  3. Hey says:

    Thank you concerned citizen!!

  4. FormerOBA says:

    Was it a Red Snake or a Green snake?

  5. eyes wide open says:

    Bermuda is full of snakes

  6. Triangle Drifter says:

    Thanks to that citizen. You saved us thousands in taxpayer money. Had it been collected alive it would have been kept for weeks while various authorities held endless meetings before deciding to do what you did in minutes.

      After a few photo ops.

      You are such a sad little person, simply catching it and taking it to BAMZ would have been the right thing to do, where it could be displayed if healthy.

      • Time Shall Tell says:

        There are a number of Boas presently at BAMZ & interestingly enough, none of them were imported by them but caught local… Imagine that.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          And this has somehow evaded making it in the news ? ?
          Fact or fiction ? Imagine that .

          • Time Shall Tell says:

            Take a trip down there & ask for yourself if you want verification, this has been going on over the course of years. Took a tour down there years back & this is actually one of the details that stuck with me.

          The last time a snake was found in Bermuda, I don’t recall the agency but the agency killed the animal. Same with the racoon that was found. It seems this is what would happen to any animal that shouldn’t be in Bermuda.

    later for all the stupid talk how the hell did it get here and are there more on island

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      Ask that question at the Aquarium & you may be surprised by the answer.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Seeing that it’s highly unlikely that it snuck into someone’s golf bag while they were away on vacation it was more than likely smuggled in by someone who has sawdust in between their ears. I’ve actually heard one or two people over the years admit to this.
      Like the same fools who buy baby red eared sliders and then let them loose when they got bigger than they thought they would. A little recognized problem that’s as big or bigger than the feral chicken issue.

  8. Concerned says:

    How did this get here? Do we need to tighten up on our customs inspections?

  9. puzzled says:

    Yah hall mad…

  10. João Sousa says:

    If you see a snake do never hesitate, run lol. Call the police and let them deal with it,because they have much more experience taking care of “animals”.

  11. spider says:

    Could have called BAMZ before acting reckless.

  12. Donna says:

    People need to pay attention! The love for exotic animals, in this case snakes, could present a very serious problem in the future. Look at Florida & the Burmese python problem! They are seriously threatening the eco system. People, please think very carefully about illegal transportation of exotic animals.The consequences would be devastating – and you would be entirely responsible.

  13. BdaBlu47 says:

    The “problem” here is the “human…” Exotic creatures carry a tremendous responsibility in ownership. The Florida issue (being a prime example) has caused havoc with the Everglades ecosystem. Because of “humans” animals have to be hunted and killed for a variety of reasons because they (the animals) are just trying to survive. All this was created by…yup…unthinking humans. Miss Donna, people do NOT think and therein lies the problem.

  14. Charles says:

    You do realize that boa constrictors kill by strangulation? You realize a small child would be at risk if wrapped around the neck by a snake that size?

  15. Yup says:

    No, it was killed by a heartless citizen who had no regard for the life of that creature. Shame it had to die when it did nothing wrong. What about the zoo?
