A 6-feet long boa constrictor has escaped from a bungalow on Swaines Way in Heathfield and residents are in panic because it is a hungry snake and is on the prowl for preys as reported in The Telegraph of dated 4th of June 2012.
It seems the snake last had a meal about a month back and, since adult boas can survive without food for up to a month, it can be safely be presumed that it is a hungry boa.
The place where it went missing from is an area where many elderly and retired persons live and they have pet cats and dogs.
Hence, there is obvious concern all around.
No one knows for certain who the owner of the snake is but a report had been lodged with Vet Judy Hanney, of Mayfied Vets informing that it has been missing for a week and, experts assure that humans need no feel threatened because the boa loves mice, rabbits, small fogs like beagles or dachshunds.
Boa constrictors do not usually attack humans.
