A merchandiser got a little more than yoghurt when he reached into a fridge and found a chilled snake at the Komatipoort Spar in Mpumalanga on Friday.

According to News24, the snake, said to be python, was close to four metres in length, Spar manager Martie Esnouf told News24.

"It got stuck in the fridge. It could have come through the roof or the drains, we have a lot of bush behind the shops, and there are snakes there," she said.

She said the snake was freed from the fridge and was now under observation and would be released into the nearby Kruger National Park.

"When a snake ends up in the fridge, its organs start shutting down and it could take up to 48 hours for it to be back to normal," she said.
