The animal protection branch of the Local Police in Malaga have confiscated a 1.5-metre-long boa constrictor snake which was seen on La Malagueta beach being offered for photo opportunities in exchange for money.

It was confiscated after its handler, a 35-year-old Slovakian, was unable to produce documents proving ownership and his transportation method, a leather bag, was deemed insufficient for a "dangerous wild animal".
