The mystery of the python that was found in a La Vista hotel bathroom has been solved. Mark Langan with the Nebraska Humane Society says the three-foot long snake was found by a woman staying at the Hampton Inn last Thursday. The snake was in the toilet. Langan says the snake belongs to a former guest who admitted he lost the reptile and he couldn’t find it. The man apparently panicked and left the hotel without telling anyone.
Langan says the snake had been in the room/hotel for several weeks without being spotted. There were likely many guests that stayed in that room as well as cleaning crews. The snake had been in the room for about three weeks. It is now with a relative of the owner who lives in Omaha. No citations will be issued.
