DERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa., Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A boa constrictor found during a funeral in Derry Township, Pa., has been nursed back to health and is now ready for adoption, zoo officials say.
Hershey Park's ZooAmerica was called in May to capture the snake, a Colombian Red Tail Boa Constrictor, after it had been seen by people attending a funeral.
The snake, named Cocoa, apparently was abandoned by someone who could no longer care for it.
The previous owner has yet to be found.
Cocoa has spent the summer at the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary in Lancaster County.
"Cocoa has gone through a few shed cycles, and dined on so many frozen rats that we've lost count. Now that she is back up to optimum health, we're ready to place Cocoa in a forever home," the sanctuary said in a release.
