Some real snakes in the Capitol

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - May 28, 2013

But these snakes aren't lawmakers or even lobbyists -- they're actual reptiles.

Baby water snakes have been spotted in the basement of the Capitol building.

State wildlife biologist Jeff Boundy says water snakes generally look for low ground.

The snakes probably got in under the doors.

A local paper reports workers recently installed weather stripping to help keep out the snakes.
