Burmese Pythons poisonous
A deputy on patrol at Pescadero Elementary and Middle School at 620 North St. noticed a large snake under a parked car at 3:13 p.m. Friday.
The snake was 7 feet long, 4.5 inches wide, weighs about 40 pounds and was first determined to be a red tail boa constrictor, sheriff’s officials said. It was later identified as a Burmese python by the Peninsula Humane Society.
The snake does not appear to be socialized, is somewhat aggressive and has undetermined skin issues, according to Peninsula Humane Society spokesman Scott Delucchi.
