A couple of reptile sightings have raised some concern in the valley.
There were reports of unfamiliar looking snakes that were identified as a white ghost corn snake and a ball python.
"The ball python we're assuming is 5 feet, which does sound scary," said Tara Mavor, manager at Critters 360. "Ball pythons are very passive, they are not aggressive. Typically they feed off of large mice. Snakes do not consume anything larger than their girth, they cannot consume even a new born child."
These snakes are not native to Alberta and according to Mavor will not survive the winter months.
"Is this thing venomous? No not at all. Can it potentially harm a person? No not at all. Even if you were to get bit it is not going to require stitches, they just want to get away," explained Mavor.
"This is definitely somebody that has left their snakes out to sun bathe in their backyard or has released them purposefully," noted Mavor. "We're hoping that there are no further reptile sightings of any other type."
Mavor added the main concern is that the snakes are found and kept safe.
Anyone who encounters the snakes is encouraged to contact Fish and Wildlife or Critters 360.
