SAN CARLOS PARK, Fla. -- The Lee County Sheriff's Office is working with Florida Fish and Wildlife to find a missing pet boa constrictor.
The snake named "Sheila" is 6 and half feet long and escaped from a home on Caloosa Road in San Carlos Park.
Pettacio says she accidently left Sheila's cage unlatched, and the snake slithered out.
The snake is non-venomous and most likely won't attack unless she feels threatened.
"They're very tame, they've been with humans their entire life that's all they know is humans, they're not aggressive, they've been around our cat."
The also hang around Amber and her husband's children. The agency she adopted Sheila from had to inspect her home before the snake could move in.
