Boa Constrictor on the loose in Plymouth, again, after giving owner the slip
AN ADVENTUROUS boa constrictor is on the loose for the second time.
Sidney the snake reappeared in August after a three month holiday, just three streets down from her home, but now the slippery serpent has escaped again.
Her owner, Chad Hearne, is asking local residents to keep an eye out since she started her voyage on Wednesday night.
"She was two foot in and two foot out of a hole between the wall and the floor," he said. "If I pulled her out I could have snapped her in half.

"She's gone under the floorboards now which is what she did last time.
"I thought she'd come back out again but she didn't, then she ended up three streets down the road."
In August neighbour Ian Gourlay stumbled across the snake near his Cotehele Avenue home.
He, his girlfriend and neighbour Bernard Brotherton tried to trap the exotic creature in a kitchen swing-bin.
But the great adventurer disappeared up a drainpipe when residents spotted her slithering along the pavement.
After The Herald reported on her travels, which even involved a police helicopter hunting down the serpent amid fears she could be deadly, Chad recognised Sidney as his family pet, bought for his four sons.
Chad continued: "If someone sees her they'll know she's mine. I just want to let people know and then they can keep their eye out for her."
Sidney went slithering into the sunset on Wednesday night. If you see her call 01752 563582.
