A three-foot-long snake is lost SOMEWHERE in a Wisconsin high school after escaping its enclosure over the weekend.
According to PEOPLE, the hunt is on for Kai the python, who remains missing inside Fond du Lac High School in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
Principal Matthew Steinbarth told people that they know he went up into one of the science ducts used for ventilation when they're working with chemicals, paints, and anything with fumes.
The staff worked with snake experts to pinpoint the location, which was determined when they found slither marks.
"We think he just decided to bump the top of his cage off," the principal told PEOPLE. "Either that or the teacher said she was in a hurry to leave that day and she maybe had bumped the desk that it had been on and it jarred the lid a little bit. The snake had just come in from being gone all summer, so he was a little bit more curious about what was going on in the new surroundings, so he wasn't his normal, docile self."
The snake is reportedly the family pet of the biology teacher and occasionally accompanies them to class to demonstrate its unique defense mechanism of rolling itself into a ball.
