Aug. 9, 1960: Tom Morton of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals took the vital signs of a female indigo snake, which surprised the Manhattan furrier Hercules Cheropoulos one morning as he arrived at work. The snake was determined to be about five years old, three inches thick at its widest and five and a half feet long, but “how it got into the 62-year-old furrier’s shop remained a mystery.” Photo: Patrick A. Burns/The New York Times
