A search is underway for a massive snake that went missing from a reptile exhibit in California.
The albino red-tailed boa constrictor, named Lemony, was a resident at Ecovivarium in Escondido. It escaped - or was stolen - about two weeks ago.
Staff at Ecovivarium say a man in his 20s disappeared from the tour group just before Lemony disappeared, and a security camera pointing at his cage was damaged.
"We are all heartbroken, and just want him safely returned, no questions asked," Ecovivarium said on Facebook.

Lemony was reportedly rescued four-and-a-half years ago in San Diego from a neglectful owner.
The museum says in the past when Lemony has gone missing, he's come out of hiding when offered food.
"Fingers are still crossed that he has found a perfect hiding spot. We will keep you all posted, we are not giving up in Lemony's return."
