Reticulated python found outside Lewisville apartment


Someone in Lewisville lost their pet. It's brown, has sharp teeth, is 11 feet long and has no legs.

Lewisville Animal Services received a call about a reticulated python Tuesday evening. The reptile was found in the breezeway of an apartment complex in the 300 block of East Southwest Parkway.

"We don't see too many pythons roaming the streets of Lewisville," said Laura Wise, director of Lewisville Animal Services.

The Lewisville facility doesn't have a big enough tank to hold to a python. The center also doesn't keep the proper food on hand to feed the serpent.

"These types of pythons will eat chickens and rabbits," Wise said.

She said they would also eat rats and mice.

The snake will be moved to the Living Materials Center in Plano on Wednesday to live a comfortable life on display.

Wise said a permit is needed to own the snake in the city of Lewisville, and a license is required by the state of Texas.

So far, no one has come forward to claim the animal, and no one is on record in Lewisville as having a permit for that particular snake.
