A missing python is slithering somewhere on the Mizzou campus.
A Defoe-Graham dorm student said his pet snake was last seen 10 days ago.
Mizzou students are allowed to have non-venomous snakes in their dorm rooms as long as the register them with the University and have permission from their roommates.
MU Residential Life administrators have posted missing snake signs inside the dorm that sits on the south side of campus.
The missing ball python is about a foot and a half long and about an inch thick.
Administrators said the snake is not a danger to anyone.
Residential Life Director Frankie Minor said, â??We posted the information in the residence halls to try and locate the snake and alert some people who might have some concerns or fears of snakes.â??
Ball pythons like to hide in tight, dark spaces.
The snakeâ??s owner believes it is hiding in his dorm room somewhere and will come out when it gets hungry.
