NEW SERIES A #London Walks Soupçon For #RegentsCanal

DC Editor Adam writes… NEW SERIES David calls them London Walks Soupçons. 

They're piquant little historical tidbits that he's methodically seeding into each walk's "page" on the London Walks website

He's had a lot of good feedback so far – visitors to walks.com like them, I hope that Daily Constitutionalists do too…

A Soupçon to accompany the Regent's Canal Camden Town to Little Venice Walk…

"Oddly, the eastern Mediterranean Asclepian snake can be found living wild in the middle of London: along the banks of the Regent's Canal near London Zoo, where a small self-sustaining population was released and became established during the 1980s. 

Fortunately for passing Londoners, this particular species of snake is not venomous, but is a constrictor, squeezing the breath from its victims; so apart from striking terror into the local rodent population, it does no harm." Natural Histories
