GORHAM, Maine (AP) -- Mara Ranger will be a little paranoid doing laundry now. When she was removing clothes from the washing machine at her Maine farmhouse Wednesday, the clothes moved. She told WMTW-TV, "I jumped back" and saw a snake. She quickly shut the lid and called for help.
Maine Animal Damage Control operator Richard Burton reached into the machine and pulled and pulled - all 8 feet of a reticulated python.
Burton guesses the snake got into Ranger's washing machine through water pipes. The snake's future home will be York Animal Kingdom in York.
Ranger is going to start looking into every corner of her washing machine. She says, "I'm going to be looking in the tub first - before and after, maybe even during, the rinse cycle."

Well I sincerely hope that never happens to me. Those retics get huge, I would end up getting attached, keeping it, and before long it would be 200 lbs, eating rabbits, and needing 2 grown men to lift it when it needs to visit the vet.
