Man Found Dead In His Bedroom Beside His Python Pet In U.K. (Photos)


An experienced snake handler was found dead in his bedroom just yards away from his pet python.

Dan Brandon, 31, suffered 'serious injuries' and died at his home in Hampshire, where he lived with his parents and an array of exotic pets.

One of his snakes, which can grow up to an incredible 25ft, was found slivering near his body, after seemingly escaping from its pen.

Mr Brandon was a keen animal enthusiast and he posted photos of him with his pets, including a huge Burmese python draped over his body, to his social media accounts.

While pythons have killed humans before, experts believe this would be the first ever case in Britain.

A source told The Sun: 'It is under investigation whether the snake was involved. The death is in an investigation stage between natural causes and an inquest.

'Investigators are waiting for the full toxicology results and reports to come back from a post-mortem.

Depending on the results, an inquest may be opened.'

Pythons have been known to be deadly however.

A man was killed by a python in Indonesia earlier in the year, while two boys died in Canada after one escaped from a pet shop in 2013.

A spokesperson for Surrey and Hampshire Reptile Rescue said last night:

'There's never been a case of a python killing someone in Britain before. They only kill what they eat.'
