Police were called and found the giant yellow python lying under the front steps.

The drama happened on July 5 in Andover, near Wichita, Kansas, USA.

A spokesman for the Andover Police Department said in a statement on Facebook: “No two days are the same at this job. Officials usually deal with escape artists who have four legs and fur.

“But this 15-foot bright yellow animal decided to change things up today.”

Police were then able to locate the owner of the 15-foot snake and bring the creature home.

The police spokesman added: “The owner has been located. “Thank you everyone for your calls and inquiries.”

One local joked, “Oh good you found Fluffy.”

Another said: “I’m moving out of Kansas.”

Kari wrote, “Something new to look out for on our morning runs.”

Erin asked, “How can someone not realize their giant snake is missing?”

Shannon commented, “Imagine finding that on the porch.”

Shawn said, “Even though he’s beautiful, I’m very scared. I would definitely have gotten my pants dirty.”

Briana wrote, “Glad the owner was found.”
