NOBLESVILLE — Animal control workers in an Indianapolis suburb have been trying to help find an 8-foot long red tail boa constrictor.The Noblesville owner of the pet snake says it got away Monday from a home in a neighborhood of the city north of Indianapolis.

Hamilton County Animal Control coordinator Tom Rogers tells WTHR-TV that such snakes can be quite elusive.

Rogers says that while many people are scared of snakes, the boa constrictor poses the greatest threat to small animals. He says a small rabbit is likely the largest animal it would eat.
