The seven-feet-long snake was found by the crew in the shower of the boat after the vessel docked at Marco Island on the south-west Florida Gulf coast on Friday.

According to a press release, the police responded to a call for the snake on the boat at Rose marina and transferred the reptile to a local wildlife handler Bobby Monroe.
