King Kali, the seven foot snake with a sore mouth, has arrived safely in veterinary care

MONTREAL – King Kali, the seven-foot, four-kilogram boa constrictor with a sore mouth has arrived at Montreal’s SPCA.

The center’s best vet, Gabrielle Carrière, takes care of the snake that suffers from a mouth infection.

Fortunately, Carrière has experience with the species, as she has already adopted one herself who had previously arrived at the center.

“We hope that our care gives King Kali the best possible chance of recovery,” said a press release from the SPCA. “But we won’t know for about a month whether this 4 kg reptile is responding well to treatment.”

Kali is not up for adoption. However, according to the SPCA, the employees have already fallen in love.

“He’s absolutely adorable and super cute,” said one employee. “He lays his head in our hands and remains completely still for his injections.”

If the king is well enough, he will be taken to a refuge center.
