Australian python steamed down in Lindesberg

— It was exhausted when it arrived after being on a boat from Australia, without food and water for four, five weeks, says Magnus Karlsson, chairman of the Unionenklubben at the factory to the newspaper.

The company is used to bringing in spiders and beetles with its deliveries from all corners of the world, but the snake is the biggest animal so far, he adds.

The species is not poisonous. The snake was taken to the Skansenakvariet in Stockholm, but did not survive.
