A 2.5-metre-long Montpellier snake was caught by Don Animal staff in La Cala del Moral on Tuesday after a local resident spotted it under a car and called the police.

The snake was taken to an unpopulated mountainous area where it was released.

It is the second time in less than a month that the species has been spotted in an urban area of the Axarquía.
