The 2-to-3-foot python named Hamilton was spotted Tuesday, nearly a week after the teacher’s pet went missing. The snake appears to be in good health
According to administrator Lucy Mandel, a high school science teacher noticed the snake was missing early Wednesday. The teacher and school principal looked for the snake for hours before calling animal control. After animal control failed to locate the python the officer left, but not before offering tips on how staff and teachers might find the snake and where it was likely to be headed.
Administrators notified students of the missing snake and continued classes as normal.
Ball pythons are not venomous, typically docile and live in warm climates.
