Viper in the Hospital

An elderly heart operation patient got a shock when he saw an adder (Vipera berus) on the floor of his room in the intensive care ward at a Croatian hospital. He used his walking stick to kill it. Staff found a shed snake skin in a large bunch of flowers that had been brought in for a patient. (News source.)
