Officers in Niagara Regional Police Service 8 District, covering West Niagara are investigating reports of a loose Ball Python. If seen, do not approach the snake, instead contact the Humane Society.

Ball pythons are non-venomous constrictors native to West and Central Africa. They get their name “Ball python” for their tendency to curl into a ball when stressed or frightened. Ball pythons are the smallest of the African pythons growing to a maximum length of 182 cm (6 ft.).

In captivity, they are considered good pets, with their relatively small size and placid nature making them easy to handle.
