(Newser) – Loose change, the TV remote, your lost car keys—typical stuff found underneath the couch cushions. But a 3-foot-long python? That's what a Long Island couple discovered while cleaning. The Suffolk County SPCA says Peter Wang and his wife were sprucing up a basement apartment that had recently been vacated when the wife removed one of the cushions from the couch and saw the snake. The SPCA says the non-venomous Ball Python belonged to a former tenant and was going to be cared for by an upstairs tenant when it got loose. Ball Pythons are legal to own. No charges have been filed.
