Although Petzy is non-venomous police are warning members of the public not to approach her as she "may become aggressive if it feels threatened"
A 5ft boa constrictor named Petzy is on the loose after escaping from a house in Merseyside.
The four-year-old boa constrictor, which escaped from a house in Parbrook Road, Huyton, was reported missing today.
Although Petzy is non-venomous police are warning members of the public not to approach her as she "may become aggressive if it feels threatened".
Merseyside Police spokesman said: "The snake is a four-year-old boa constrictor. It is approximately 5ft long with black and green camouflage markings and yellow underneath.
"Whilst the snake is non-venomous and described as normally very placid, it may become aggressive if it feels threatened and the public are advised not to approach it but to contact Merseyside Police on the non-emergency 101 number."
