Snake off a Googleplex

Kaiser, the 3-foot python , was found by janitors on Monday night, according to tech gossip site Valleywag.

"The gray-and-brown reptile, smuggled in by a snake-obsessed techie called Adam who couldn't bear to be away from his pet during the workday, was still on the fourth floor, where it went missing from its tank," the site said. "According to our correspondent: 'His distraught owner was called and he officially vacated the premises around 10:15 p.m.'"

A Google spokesman confirmed that the python had been found but did not comment on whether any disciplinary action was taken against the owner.
