The 'pet' anaconda that escaped from an enclosure at a Phoenix house earlier this week has yet to be found.
Prem Balram, a spokesperson for Reaction Unit SA, told IOL on Saturday morning that the snake has yet to be found.
The non-venomous reptile was originally believed to have escaped from a makeshift enclosure on Troy Street.
Evans told The Mercury that while yellow anacondas were widespread in the pet trade, they weren't very popular.
"They're not on the list of invasive species, so they're lawful," he explained.
Evans believes the anaconda would be astonished if it were to attack a dog or cat.
"Perhaps a kitten or a little dog." "More like rats, because they prefer to be in water," he explained.
The yellow anaconda, commonly known as the Paraguayan anaconda, is a boa species indigenous to southern South America, according to a fast internet search.
It is one of the world's largest snakes, according to Wikipedia, although smaller than its near relative, the green anaconda. It is non-venomous, like all boas and pythons, and kills its prey by constriction.
Balram advised anyone who saw the snake to call their headquarters at 086 1234 333.
