BOSTON (CNN) - Nearly a month after it slithered away on a Massachusetts train, a woman's pet snake has been found in the same place it vanished.

The snake, named Penelope, got lost in January while Melissa Moorhouse was riding the train.

The Transportation Authority took the train out of service, but there was no sign of the reptile until Thursday, when the snake re-surfaced.

The train's conductor, a snake owner herself, managed to catch her.

"It's a little surreal I think. It doesn't, it seems unbelievable," said Moorhouse.

Moorhouse knew the snake could survive for awhile. Her breed can go months without eating, but they do need heat.

"Currently, we keep the trains warm at night. The trains are constantly warm so the snake had a heat source," said Bill McClellan with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. "I'm so glad we found her because it was becoming folklore that there was a snake on our trains."

Moorhouse is happy to have her beloved pet back where she belongs.

"I think she's starting to get into her snake teenage years and getting a little bit more adventurous than she used to be," she joked.
