Boa constrictor awakens New York man after falling from bedroom ceiling

Recommended Posts

A man in Pulaski, New York awoke to an unsettling surprise late last month: a boa constrictor.


The snake fell from the ceiling and landed on the man, who was not identified, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation announced Wednesday.


Matt Foster, a department agent, arrived at the home on June 29 after “a panicked caller reported that a large snake had fallen from the ceiling onto a subject sleeping in his bedroom,” the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation said in a statement.


After investigating, Foster determined the red-tailed boa constrictor, estimated to be 6 feet long, escaped from its enclosure in the apartment above the man’s and somehow managed to enter the ceiling.


The agency says the snake fell from the ceiling of the downstairs apartment, where it landed on a man sleeping in bed.

I'd change them no matter what happened. Who wants to crawl back into bed after a snakes been there.  But if he was highly excitable, it's a wonder the shock didn't kill him.

I had a boa escape from me when I was young.  First time, I caught him, i could see his tail hanging down behind a hole under the kitchen sink.  Second time, he got away clean, for all i know, he could still be in the walls, eating mice and rats.
