Byrne also said that a snake this big could have killed his own two-year-old granddaughter. “Someone would be completely reckless to let the snake escape. I never expected to be attacked by a large python in my own home.

The snake is native to Asia

NCRW director Chris Newman explained that it was extremely unusual for the reticulated python, which is native to South and South-East Asia, to escape in the UK.

“It is my dream that this animal escapes. They are big and can harm the baby. We deal with escaped snakes, but very rarely we deal with reticulated pythons,” he said.

“It is an adorable snake and very peaceful. I want to return the snake to its owner and understand what happened. If no one comes forward, the reptile will be rescued.
