SWARTHMORE, Pa. -

After a week on the lam... a wayward snake from Delaware County has slithered back home.

Snakey the boa constrictor was found in the backyard of a Swarthmore home Wednesday afternoon, just a few blocks away from its home.

The snake belongs to veterinarian Dr. David Speiegel who says he lets Snakey sunbathe in his yard but he may have been left unattended for too long when he escaped.

Spiegel said Snakey didn't pose any risks to humans or pets.
