An appeal has gone out in an effort to reunite a snake - found in Lytham - with its owner.
The California King Snake was discovered trapped in netting by a shocked couple as they went to pick gooseberries.
Now called Gooseberry, the RSPCA tweeted that the reptile “didn’t have lasting damage and is doing well”.
The RSPCA urged: “Anyone know who owns him give us a call!”
The California King Snake (Lampropeltis getula californiae) is a non-poisonous snake endemic to the western United States and northern Mexico.
It is relatively small and one of the most popular snakes in captivity.
