Security guards at Tonga’s Parliament have found what appeared to be a snake outside Parliament this morning.

The reptile which has yet to be officially identified for its type has caused public concerns  since land snakes do not exist in the kingdom.

Radio FM 87.5 report says Police have confiscated the reptile.

It was not immediately clear how it ended up at the Parliament’s door and some claimed it could be a type of land snake that might have arrived in Tonga through shipping containers from overseas.

The Tongan authorities could not be reached for comment.
