(Newser) – Loose change, the TV remote, your lost car keys—typical stuff found underneath the couch cushions. But a 3-foot-long python? That's what a Long Island couple discovered while cleaning. The Suffolk County SPCA says Peter Wang and his wife were sprucing up a basement apartment that had recently been vacated when the wife removed one of the cushions from the couch and saw the snake. The SPCA says the non-venomous Ball Python belonged to a former tenant and was going to be cared for by an upstairs tenant when it got loose. Ball Pythons are legal to own. No charges have been filed. (Read more python stories.)
