A man was shocked to discover a snake in his garden in Dun Laoghaire yesterday afternoon.

The ball python, that's normally found in Africa, was discovered among plants in Doug Keatinge's garden.

Panic

Taking to Twitter for help, Mr Keatinge captioned a picture of the snake: "Snake in my garden. Panic! What to do?"

I thought 'Jesus, there's a snake on the loose'.

Mr Keatinge revealed he initially believed his children were playing a prank on him when they spotted the animal.

"I went out to have a look, I was a bit alarmed because suddenly there was no snake there," he said. "I thought 'Jesus, there's a snake on the loose'. I then found it three or four feet away in a flower bed."

He subsequently discovered it was his neighbour's pet and the python had been missing for a month. The pet reptile, named Mona Lisa, has now been reunited with its owners.
