A snake necklace has been found in the middle of a field near the Bulgarian town of Bulgaria.
A large python has been discovered in the field in Bulgarian farmland.
It is believed to be a python with an umbilical cord, according to a statement on the website of the Bulgarian National Animal Rescue Association.
“The snake is about 30 cm long, and its body is about 1.5 metres long,” the statement read.
The snake has been taken to the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Fisheries (BIF) where the body will be weighed before it can be returned to the wild.
BIF has said that it would be possible to release the python into the wild, but only if there were no further risks.
In a statement, the group said the snake is a member of a small genus of snakes in the family Pampasidae, which includes the snake species of Bulgari and Bulgarian Pampans, and is considered by scientists to be an endangered species.
This is not the first time that a snake has turned up in Bulgaria, but it is the first that has turned out to be the wrong one, the statement said.
Some other local wildlife groups have said that they will be sending a snake to the BIF for further assessment.
On Friday, Bulgaria was rocked by the death of the snake, and locals are calling for its release from the fields in Bulgaria.
