Berlin – A young man detained by police during a drunken argument in Germany was found to be carrying a baby python in his pants, and may be in trouble under animal welfare laws.

Police in the southwestern city of Darmstadt said the 19-year-old was detained after a loud argument with another man disturbed residents.

They said he was searched and officers noticed "a significant bulge in his trousers".

The man told officers that he had a snake in his pants, and pulled out a 35cm baby king python.

He was taken to a police cell to sober up and the snake was put in a box.

Police said on Wednesday they were looking for the reptile's owner and examining whether "the non-species-appropriate transport" violated animal protection laws.
