The 5-year-old snake has been missing since July 7.
“He’s likely to have crawled somewhere tight and dark during the day, possibly drainpipes, but there’s more chance of him being under or behind stuff like sheds or just anything that will provide darkness," Afonso told the Manchester Evening News. "If anyone finds him please try to put him in a box or inside a pillow case and tie the end and contact me to come and get him.”
