PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A royal python is on the loose in a Cheshire town after it escaped through an open window. The snake, which was kept as a pet, was reported missing in the Heath Road and Union Street area of Runcorn last Tuesday. The python, named Carley, is said to be six or seven years old and has not been seen after its escape last week. Carley’s owner described her as “harmless” and “soft as a brush”. They said a search of the house has proven fruitless, but a “window was left open”, suggesting the python has slithered outside, reports the Liverpool Echo.

According to the RSPCA, royal pythons can live for more than 20 years in captivity and grow up to about 150cm, which is just under 5ft. They can become “quite docile” with careful handling but might bite “under stress or if they smell food”. Royal pythons aren’t venomous. Parkland and a pond near Heath Road in Runcorn.

. “The RSPCA collects more snakes over the summer months. It is possible that some of these are escapees becoming more active in warmer weather. It’s also possible that this could be due to snakes having more opportunity to escape, such as if owners take them outside to take advantage of the natural sunlight. “It’s good for reptiles to be allowed the opportunity for natural sunlight, however we would urge owners to ensure that their reptile is kept secure when doing so, as reptiles can warm up and become very quick to move on a sunny day." A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said: “At around 11.30am on Tuesday, July 26, police were made aware of a python that had escaped from a property on Heath Road, Runcorn. No further reports were received and no police action will be taken.” The Echo tried to contact the snake's owner.
