BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities say they’ve found a 12-foot python that escaped from its enclosure inside Louisiana’s largest shopping mall.

WBRZ-TV reports the snake was recaptured from a ceiling crawl space early Thursday after two days of searching.

Video posted by the station shows workers using a ladder as Cara — wrapped around the shoulder and back of one of them — is carried down. The yellow and white Burmese python was taken to the Louisiana School of Veterinary Medicine for a health check.

Cara slithered out of her enclosure at the Blue Zoo in the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge on Tuesday.
