A teacher’s 2-foot-long ball python that escaped a week ago from his glass tank in a biology classroom at a high school east of Seattle has been found.
KOMO-TV reports that school district officials in Issaquah say the snake named Hamilton was located Tuesday morning in the same classroom where he vanished. He was last seen on Sept. 10.

Issaquah High School Principal Andrea McCormick calls him “a tricky little snake” and says he’s believed to have escaped on his own.
