Flitwick Beaver Jake Fensom caused a real ss-stir when he produced his pet to earn his Animal Friend badge.

One of the criteria for the badge included informing others about the animal.

Jake decided he didn’t just want to tell other people how he looked after his pet snake, so he took it along to the group meeting.

Beavers spokesman, Louise Rutt, said: “Scouting gives young people the opportunity to do lots of different activities and getting up close and personal with a snake is one of them.”
