Snake slithering through Googleplex

It's been confirmed by Google. There is indeed a python on the loose at the company's New York City office.

"What you have heard is in fact true and not an April Fools' Day joke," a Google spokesman wrote in an e-mail to CNET News.com. "We are confident that we have the appropriate resources in place to resolve this issue as quickly as possible in the best interests of both the Googlers in our NYC office and Kaiser the snake."

That the 3-foot snake was AWOL was first reported by tech gossip site Valleywag.

"Our exterminator, with Google's security team and the snake's owner, are searching for it. Should you see the snake, please do not attempt to touch it or pick it up. Call security immediately," warned a Sunday an e-mail to employees in the office. The python was still missing as of Monday, according to a followup e-mail.

The pets policy of Google New York allows only dogs to be brought into the office. What?! No mongoose?
