Python Found at Monroe Co., Walmart Now Accepted
BLOOMINGTON – A python found inside a local Walmart store is currently on the market for its permanent home.
The young snake, now named Wolverine, was found on a shelf by a kindhearted samaritan who goes by the name City of Bloomington Animal Care and Control, according to a Tuesday Facebook post from the agency.
This agency is part of the city’s public department and operates the Bloomington City Animal Shelter.
It’s unclear how Wolverine got into the store.
“We’d love to know how our little friend ended up at Walmart, but Wolverine isn’t talking!” shared home. “He’ll do best with an experienced snake owner. He’s a little stressed and a little teary. He’s getting more and more used to the thought being handled and will probably be able to relax more in an environment.” quieter.”
The shelter says it has received many potential adopters and is no longer listed as available. They believe Wolverine will make a great companion for the right families.
According to the San Diego Zoo, pythons are non-venomous and can grow to be about 33 feet long.
They are known to eat other animals, including mammals, reptiles, and birds.
Indiana is home to 32 native snake species, only four of which are venomous, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
