In the time that it was there, a huge crowd had already gathered and everyone was using their mobile phones to take videos.

ACRES was called over to the scene this morning. They created a hole in the false ceiling of the shophouse, and an ACRES spokesperson said that the snake was not in view.

They advised that the snake would have slithered away as pythons are generally shy, non-venomous creatures, whose diet consists of small mammals, rats and birds. Since the snake was not removed from the premises, it is likely that it would have slithered away.
