snake.png It's all very well wanting to look after your glorious shoe investments but Harrods seem to have taken this idea to extremes with their confounding decision to borrow a snake to guard a pair of designer lovelies.

The poisonous cobra has been placed in a case to guard a pair of jewel encrusted sandals weighing in at a whopping £60,000. The highly aggressive and deadly snake, called Cedric, was hired to guard a pair of Rene Caovilla sandals encrusted with rubies, sapphires and diamonds. But as it turns out, it may just have been a sly photo op, as Cedric (deadly name that, huh?) has been returned home safe and sound.
