The guilty python

The python acted aggressively when animal handlers captured it in mid-2016 during a police raid at a drug den in Sydney, Australia. The handlers soon realized that it was likely high on the meth police seized at the drug den.

Wildlife experts therefore decided to put the dicey slithery creature on rehabilitation Corrective Services NSW Wildlife Care Centre at Windsor, south of Sydney. The check-in procedure was similar to that of a human addict.

Animal handlers deduced from the python's aggressive and erratic behavior that it was high on meth

Ian Mitchell, a snake handler involved in capturing the python said: "He was totally on edge, jittery, slithering and wanting to strike. Normally these pythons can be a little bit snappy, they are constrictors and not poisonous, and they just lie around. This one was very aggressive and had very erratic behavior."

It reportedly took a month for the methamphetamine to clear from the python's system and up to seven months before the python was completely back to normal.
