Pet snake 'addicted to smoking'
Taipei resident Sho Lau explained that his viper Po was attracted to a discarded cigarette because of his own 20-a-day habit, Metro reports.
The 33-year-old said: "He is very tame and one day when I threw a cigarette butt away he went for it and seemed to enjoy having it in his mouth.
'One thing led to another and before long he was having one cigarette in the morning and another at night. He gets very agitated if I don't have any to spare."
