A 7-foot, 15-pound boa constrictor has been missing from an Escondido animal museum for nearly two weeks.
Workers at the EcoVivarium in Escondido believe someone stole the large boa from his cage. The 5-year-old snake, named Lemony Snicket, is an albino red-tailed boa that is a rescue animal.
The staff believes a man stole the snake during a tour with about 10 people back on April 29.
Now -- I'm definitely not a fan of snakes, but this animal was in a cage minding his own business. Who knows where he is or if he's being cared for. And if someone careless did swipe him, is there a chance he could escape and perhaps kill a small child or a pet?
Something to think about.
