We have a happy ending to a slithery story that made international headlines.
It’s a conclusion to the story of the elusive corn snake that made its home in a Victoria storm drain.
The reptile foiled efforts by city staff to capture it for days until it was finally lured out of its lair and taken into the care of Victoria Animal Control.
No one came forward to claim the snake in the required waiting period, but we can tell you now that the creature has been adopted.
We have unconfirmed reports that its new forever home is with one of the city workers who rescued it.
