Cara, a 12-foot-long albino Burmese python
, has been located!
On Tuesday morning, the nonvenomous 150-pound snake
escaped from her
enclosure at the Blue Zoo
Aquarium inside the Mall of Louisiana
in Baton Rouge.
Snake experts, animal trackers, firefighters
officers, plumbers, and heating engineers were all enlisted to help in the hunt for the elusive serpent.
During the search, the aquarium was closed, and requests for sniffer dogs
and scanning devices were made on social media
Cara was discovered hidden inside a wall early Thursday morning.
It's not clear where she was discovered or if she managed to get past the aquarium's perimeter.
Cara was dragged out of the aquarium, and the aquarium shared footage of her:

The aquarium captioned the video, "Cara was safe and healthy."
