A meth addicted python has been sent to wildlife rehab to work through his issues and get over his addiction. No, I’m not joking.

Apparently the python was seized during a drug raid – it’s common for pythons to be used to guard drug labs because they’re easy to take care of and they’re fucking scary.
Unfortunately for this slippery creature, after being exposed to meth fumes for months, he became addicted to the stuff. Following the drug raid, the snake was taken in by Corrective Services NSW Wildlife Care Centre in Windsor. The manager Ian Mitchell said that the poor thing was, “totally on edge, jittery, slithering and wanting to strike.”
This one was erratic and aggressive, which is actually quite unusual for a python. The centre had to care for the snake as he went through the pain and suffering of cold turkey.
Amazingly, he made it through and, seven months after the snake’s drug problem was discovered, he is now “clean” and ready to enter a certified reptile home. Hopefully there he’ll write his memoirs about his addiction, hitting rock bottom and then his incredible journey to recovery. Maybe he could call it ‘Shedding my skin’. Just an idea.
