  • Castleton State is missing a four foot-long Brazilian rainbow boa constrictor.
  • College officials believe the snake was stolen.
  • The snake is reportedly not dangerous as it was trained to eat only frozen mice.
  • Most people lose something throughout the day like car keys or their cell phone, but students at Castleton State College lost something much larger: a four foot-long Brazilian rainbow boa constrictor. 

    The snake was kept in the college’s zoology lab and was last seen Friday. The building was locked for the weekend and on Monday for a snow day, but the snake was nowhere to found when students returned on Tuesday. 

    College officials believe the snake was stolen since the cage had a weighted lid and the door was locked. 

    The snake is said not to be dangerous because it has been trained to only eat frozen mice. College officials sent out a campus-wide email instructing students to keep an eye out for the large creature.
