Snake recaptured

CHARLESTON, W. Va. (AP) - Bob the snake is back in captivity after three weeks on

the loose, but his slippery cohorts have continued to outfox their owners.

Bob, Omar, and Robert, all boa constrictors, escaped from their home at "Sunrise

Children's Museum," by slipping through a mesh opening in their cage, said Greg

Railings, who oversees the museum's nature center.

Bob was found recently curled around a plant, but Omar and Robert remain free as

birds.

The snakes, which range in length from 3 feet to 4 feet, would be unable to reach

public areas because of the building's construction, said Rawlings.

"Nobody's in danger," he added. "The snakes are so small, they really

wouldn't think of a person as food."

Food put out to lure the snakes into the open has gone untouched, and since boa constrictors

can go for months without food, it may be a while before they take the bait, Rawlings

said.
