Ok, let’s put the power of social media to use, as a California kingsnake (Lampropeltis g. californiae) in Scotland is in need of a new home. Share this with your friends on Facebook, call your friends in Scotland via Viber, and let's help find Rascal a permanent home.

Rascal was found in a kitchen in Bathgate, Scotland back in 2012. He has been at the Edinburgh Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre since that summer and has been at the center longer than any other animal. He has spent more than 1000 days waiting for his forever home.

Rascal has been at Scotland's Edinburgh Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre for three years.

“Poor Rascal has been with us for nearly three years and has attracted very little interest, said the center’s assistant manager Kenny Sharpe. “A lot of people are put off by his appearance but we know there are plenty of reptile enthusiasts out there who will appreciate Rascal for the stunning creature he is.

According to Sharpe, Rascal has a good temperament for a kingsnake and the center is looking for an owner who has current or previous experience with snakes. 

If you know any reptile enthusiasts in Scotland who can take on Rascal, or if you live in Scotland and can care for him, give the Scottish SPCA’s Edinburgh centre a call at 03000 999 999. Website: http://www.scottishspca.org/rehoming/category/exotics
