A CORNSNAKE who shares his name with a 90s icon is search­ing for his for­ever home.

David Hisselhoff was first taken into the care of the Scot­tish SPCA in April and is cur­rently at the char­ity’s Dru­moak premises. The in­spi­ra­tion for the ser­pent’s unique mon­icker came cour­tesy of the Scot­tish SPCA staff who care for him. Graeme Innes, man­ager of the Scot­tish SPCA animal res­cue and re­hom­ing cen­tre in Dru­moak, said: “David Hisselhoff was handed into our cen­tre in Aberdeen by the po­lice af­ter be­ing found as a stray and he has been in our care for 180 days now. “The amaz­ing name was a cre­ation of the staff at the cen­tre where he is be­ing cared for – they’re very cre­ative when it comes to nam­ing the an­i­mals.” Staff de­scribe Hisselhoff as a “won­der­ful lit­tle year­ling who was found as a stray and we were un­able to trace his pre­vi­ous owner”. It adds: “Hoff is so far eat­ing well and sheds bril­liantly. “As David Hisselhoff is so small, he will re­quire suit­able sized vi­var­i­ums to grow with him as he gets big­ger.” The char­ity is hop­ing to find the snake his for­ever home. Be­ing young – the char­ity be­lieves be­tween one and two years old – staff are look­ing to find him an owner who has pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence with snakes. Graeme added: “As he is so young he is slightly ner­vous but is im­prov­ing ev­ery day. “He will need an owner who is able to help him con­tinue to be­come com­fort­able with han­dling and peo­ple in gen­eral. “Since he is con­tin­u­ally grow­ing, David Hisselhoff will re­quire suit­able sized vi­var­i­ums to grow with him as he gets big­ger. “For th­ese rea­sons, we feel that he would not suit some­one as a be­gin­ner snake. “If any­one is in­ter­ested in of­fer­ing David Hisselhoff the home he de­serves, then please con­tact our cen­tre in Dru­moak on 03000 999 999.”
