Baby python stolen from Dobbies garden centreAn 18-inch long 'hatchling' python has reportedly been swiped from Dobbies Garden World in Stirling.
Royal python snakes are not poisonous and are said to 'rarely bite'
The royal python, which is dark green with light green markings, was stolen from a glass case on Friday, February 24. It is the second time in just over a year that a python has been stolen from the store.
Last October Anthony Quinn, who allegedly used to keep an alligator in his bathtub, was jailed for five months after sneaking out of the same centre with a 50cm snake in his pocket.
Adult royal pythons can grow up to five feet long and are not venomous. Police are appealing for anyone with any information about the theft to come forward.
