A Long Island, New York animal shelter is temporary home for a 1-foot-long snake that a mother found coiled on her 7-month-old daughter's leg as the baby slept in a crib.
Cari Abatemarco of upstate Troy, New York says she was visiting family in Brentwood, New York says she found a snake wrapped around her daughter's leg.
Abatemarco says she lifted her daughter and the snake fell off.
A relative removed the snake from the crib and placed it in a bucket until animal control officers arrived.
The reptile has been identified as a California King Snake, a non-venomous snake that's not indigenous to the region.
