A nightmarish story. The Daily Mirror returns to the misadventure of a Briton in an article of November 6, 2022. Tasha Lane, 23, was sleeping soundly next to her boyfriend Reece Parillon, when she felt movement under the duvet. At first, the young woman thought it was her dog Harley who came to snuggle up against her. But the animal that had just slipped past her was not one to bark, nor was it endowed with a very soft coat.

Nose to nose with a snake

Tasha Lane couldn’t see anything in the dark. So she grabbed the flashlight from her cell phone to illuminate the underside of her blanket. The young woman found herself face to face with… a snake! Terrified, she jumped out of bed screaming. “There’s a snake! There’s a snake!” she shouted. “Then I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s going to kill me'”, she recalls before continuing: “The dog was on one of my feet and the snake on the other.”

The orange reptile actually belonged to his neighbor named Jade Forester. She had lost him months ago. “I don’t know how he managed to escape, but it had been almost three months. My son was devastated to have lost him”, testified the neighbor delighted to have found his pet. It is a corn snake of the Colubridae family. The reptile, endemic to the eastern and southeastern United States, is not poisonous. According to Wikipedia, it lives in fields with abundant vegetation, at the edge of forests or in abandoned or rarely used buildings. It is found from sea level to an altitude of about 1800 meters.
