A Royal Python called Pitonka has escaped from an apartment in the 7th district of Budapest. His owners have been looking for him ever since.
The concerned owners have put up posters in the 7th district, looking for their beloved pet.
“Our lovely, well-trained Royal Python escaped from us on 27 May,”
the posters say.
As rtl.hu reports, the owners claim that the one-metre-long animal is very gentle, not dangerous to humans or animals, has no fangs and tends to cower in fear rather than attack. Therefore, residents in the area are asked to call the phone number on the posters if they see the reptile.
The snake’s owner told rtl.hu on Tuesday that the animal has unfortunately still not been found. The shy animal is probably hiding in a dark, isolated place, but after a while it will need to crawl out into the sun and warm up. They hope that someone will spot the animal then and call them.
According to Index, the owner also said that they did not have to report the animal to the police because it is completely harmless. However, some residents in their apartment building were so frightened by the news that they were thinking of moving.
