Consider for example a boa constrictor, which is a large-bodied snake that can reach up to 13 feet in length and 45 kilograms in weight. Now even though boas are nonpoisonous, according to National Geographic, finding one hanging on a wire above your house can be terrifying experience, even if it 'tame'.
In a tweet, Rob Taylor who works for the North Wales Police Rural Crime Team shared a picture of a constrictor pet who had escaped from its tank and made a bid to escape. The picture was captured a year ago in Anglesey.

In a following tweet he explained how the snake slithered to another house but was eventually recovered by its owner.
"It's a timely reminder that people keep these sorts of animals. They are kept legally but they can be dangerous and they need to be kept under proper conditions," he told The Guardian.
We agree, Sir. No one would want to have that hanging over them.
