Scottsdale, AZ (KPHO/KTVK) — Firefighters with the Scottsdale Fire Department say they keep finding big snakes all in the same neighborhood.

Two weeks ago, fire crews found a 10-foot-long python in the area of 75th Street and Osborn Road, firefighters said. A dentist in the neighborhood claimed it as his pet and they gave him back to him.

Then crews found a seven-foot-long boa constrictor in the same neighborhood but no one has claimed to own it.

On Aug. 29, firefighters said they found another boa constrictor that was seven feet long in the same area and it hasn’t been claimed either.

The two snakes that haven’t been claimed are with the Phoenix Herpetological Society.
