A snake has been rescued after it was found coiled around a lamppost in a city street.
Local people contained the reptile in a pillow case after a resident spotted it outside her home.
They called the Scottish SPCA, which rescued the creature from Hollybrook Street in the Govanhill area of Glasgow.
Staff have named the rat snake Lumiere, which means light in French.
Scottish SPCA inspector Jennifer Connolly said: "The woman who alerted us to Lumiere was pretty shaken up by her discovery. It's not every day you find a snake outside your house, so it's understandable she got a fright.
"Someone else contained Lumiere inside a pillow case until I arrived because the lady wouldn't go near him. Despite her shock, we're very glad she called us so we could help Lumiere. Although it was really warm on Saturday, snakes need heat and once the temperature dropped in the evening he wouldn't have survived for long."
The charity has also rescued a horsefield tortoise which a woman spotted between two parked cars outside her home in Dornal Avenue in the Yoker area of the city.
Rescue staff have named the reptile Bolt after Olympic gold-medal winning sprinter Usain Bolt.
Animal rescue officer Ashley Griffin said: "We're so glad Bolt was found as he could easily have been injured or even killed if the cars had moved. He's a really healthy and happy wee guy, so it certainly seems he's a much-loved pet who's decided to go for a wander in the sunshine.
"The street Bolt was found on is part of a large residential area, so it's quite possible his owner lives nearby. We've rescued lots of stray tortoises this summer, which is probably because they tend to go in search of a mate when the weather heats up. They're really good escape artists and much quicker than most people realise."
