A seven-foot long boa was picked up near an industrial park in Lansing.

Ingham County Animal Control was called after a man spotted the serpent on Wednesday.

The Red-Tailed constrictor weighs just under 23 pounds and is about seven years old.

Officials say it had to be a pet, but until the owner is found, it will stay at a foster home until someone claims it.
