Snake found in City Museum cave

ST. LOUIS – A snake that escaped from its aquarium at City Museum was found Wednesday morning in one of the museum's caves.

A spokesperson for City Museum confirms the baby bull snake was spotted by two teens playing in a cave. A staffer caught it and returned it to the aquarium.

Laura Wylie emailed NewsChannel 5 Wednesday to tell us she and her friend Paige Hudspeth found the snake around 9:45 a.m. Wylie said the area was dark, and the approximately 10-inch long snake was striking at them.

Officials do not know how the snake escaped.
