PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Brookline man says he needs help finding his missing pet, a baby ball python.
He insists she is super friendly and just had a big meal a couple of weeks ago.
“I came down the stairs in the morning and noticed the terrarium was a crack open,” said the snake’s owner, Nathan Porter.
“My number one thing is making sure I lock it. And I must have just forgot,” Porter added.
Porter realizes the snake may sound scary but Lady Cabel eats only small rodents.
The owner tells KDKA she slipped out of her terrarium, headed straight to the basement and possibly outside.
Porter posted his python’s picture on the community Facebook page hoping someone finds her.
“If they’re feeling brave, oh, they can pick her up and put her in a box or cloth bag,” Porter said.
He’s offering a cash reward and hopes to find her soon because she likely won’t survive the winter outside.
If you spot the snake, you can call her owner at 814-648-0893.
