Police were called out on Thursday evening after a huge python was found near service station in southern Germany.

The cold-blooded reptile was lying motionless on the asphalt near Lorch in Baden-W├╝rttemberg when police arrived at the scene shortly after 7 pm.

But officers were unsure whether the animal was not moving due to the cold, or was in fact dead.

A veterinarian was called to the scene and ascertained that the snake had in fact shuffled off this mortal coil.

Pythons are a protected species in Germany and can only be owned with a special licence, Stern reports.
