EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - Imagine finding a ball python in your yard.

That's exactly what happened to a homeowner in Euclid.

The nonvenomous snake is mostly found in Africa. The name refers to the animal's tendency to curl into a ball when stressed or frightened.

The snake is resting comfortably at the Euclid Animal Shelter on Lakeland Blvd.
