The Snake was brought to Sodor by ship. Whilst being unloading, the snake's crate was split open and escaped. It roamed around the docks for some time while the dockyard workers tried to find it. Before being recaptured by a ranger, the snake gave Percy quite a fright. Percy then took the snake to the Sodor Wildlife Centre where it now resides. Although it caused quite a scare at the docks, the snake is completely harmless.
