Massive python that left neighborhood on edge turns up in unlikely spot

A slithery reptile that had been missing for six months was recently captured inside an Oklahoma City mobile home park.

The 8-foot albino golden child reticulated python, which had gone missing earlier this year, was found late last month inside of Burntwood Mobile Home Park, the site of its disappearance.

The male snake was found during the early morning hours of Oct. 25 by the occupants of one of the mobile homes under some trash receptacles as it attempted to seek warmth, according to the Oklahoma Exotics Rescue and Sanctuary.

Mike and Brittney, who have built a lifestyle around the rehabilitation of certain reptiles, said albino pythons normally live about 20 to 30 years in captivity.
