A couple cleaning out an apartment they were moving into on Long Island were startled to find a three-foot long ball python snake underneath a couch cushion Monday. 

Animal control officials in Suffolk say the couple was cleaning a recently vacated basement apartment in Holbrook and the wife went to move one of the cushions on the couch when she found the snake. 

Suffolk SPCA officers responded and retrieved the snake from inside the couch. 

Investigators determined the snake belonged to the former tenant and was supposed to be cared for by the upstairs tenant when it got loose. 

Ball pythons are legal to own and no charges have been filed, officials said.
