Postal worker finds 8-foot python lounging on Kansas mailbox

A mail carrier in Overland Park got an unwelcome surprise when he delivered mail to one home.

Rain, snow, sleet, even barking dogs are fine, but a Kansas postal worker had to draw the line when he found a red tail boa constrictor draped over a mailbox.

The Overland Park Police Department says a mail carrier alerted animal control to a rather large ball python slithering around their mailbox.

"The poor resident did not receive their mail today (obviously)", police tweeted.

Ms Gibson said the serpent was the biggest snake she had ever seen and "looked like it had just had lunch". A snake expert told officers that it was obvious the python had been cared for.

A postal worker discovered the out-of-place snake during his typical route Friday.

Neighbors said they expect the pet python belongs to another family in the area, but that doesn't make the encounter any less weird.
