CAN YOU GIVE A HOME TO DAVID HISSELHOFF?
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.”
