Snake Found in Traffic

The Tarrant County, TX, newspaper, Star-Telegram, notes that, "Commuters may have been shocked Thursday to see a Burmese python merging into traffic near Interstate 20. But apparently not as confounded as the constrictor. Police rescued the 5-foot snake about 4:15 p.m. on the eastbound I-20 service road near the Collins Street exit."
The snake was placed with an animal shelter. I'll should note that the picture of the snake accompanying the article shows that it is a boa constrictor, not a python.
