A 7-foot pet boa constrictor is on the loose in Delaware County.

The snake, named "Snakey," escaped from its Swarthmore home earlier this week, the Delaware County Times reports.

Snakey has been a pet to the Spiegel family for 18 years. The snake slithered away from the back yard of their Park Avenue property, where its owners last saw it soaking up the sun, Monday morning.

The family has hung fliers across the borough in hopes their beloved pet will be returned safely.
