Baltimore’s Water Wheel picked up an unexpected and alarming visitor last week: a five-foot-long ball python found cozied up on the machine’s solar power inverter. The managers of the Water Wheel – a floating solar- and wind-powered trash collector that can gobble up to 50,000 pounds of rubbish a day – have some strange things aboard, from a keg of beer to a still-frozen carton of strawberry ice cream. But a fully grown snake is a definite first. The brown and black adult snake is presumably an escaped pet and has since been adopted into a new home. The snake even has its own Twitter account and you can follow its adventures here.
