Rep­tile lovers are be­ing urged to open their hearts and their homes to a lonely snake.

Striker, a corn­snake, was brought to the SPCA cen­tre a year ago and staff there have looked after him ever since.

Now they’re ap­peal­ing for some­one keen to have a snake as a pet to con­sider giv­ing Striker a new home.

Scot­tish SPCA Glas­gow cen­tre man­ager Anna O’Don­nell said: “Striker ar­rived at the cen­tre through no fault of his own a year ago.

“He is look­ing for a home with an ex­pe­ri­enced owner who has the knowl­edge to look after him.

“We would love to find him a new home soon with some­one who has a keen in­ter­est in rep­tiles.

“Though they don’t play fetch or come when you call their name, corn­snakes are great pets for any rep­tile lover.

“His owner will need to be ded­i­cated and have the time and com­mit­ment to en­sure he con­tin­ues to be a happy and healthy snake.”

Any­one who can of­fer Striker a suit­able new home is be­ing asked to con­tact the Scot­tish SPCA’s cen­tre in Car­don­ald on 03000 999 999.
