Lilly, believed to be Britain’s longest family pet, lives with Chloe and her parents Pete, 49, and Kim, 45, at their three-bedroom home in Guyhirn, Cambridgeshire.

The seven-year-old albino python, which may one day reach 20ft, was bought as a baby. She sleeps in a heated tank and her diet is one rabbit every three weeks.

Chloe, who has enrolled at a college to study reptile keeping, said: “Lilly is fun to play around with and is very gentle.” - Daily News
