Burmese Python
Another large snake may be on the loose in Santa Fe.

SANTA FE (KRQE) – It looks like there is another big snake roaming around Santa Fe.

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter says someone went in to see if the 7-foot Burmese python found in a woman’s truck Thursday was their missing snake but it wasn’t.

Turns out, he’s looking for his pet, a red boa constrictor that went missing off airport road.

So for now the python remains unclaimed.

The slithery discovery was made after a good samaritan stopped on a Santa Fe street to help a woman with her pickup.

When he popped the hood to take a look he found the snake staring back at him.

Animal Control suspects it escaped from one of the truck owner’s neighbors. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
