$30,000 Worth of Snakes Stolen From State College Home

Wednesday night, somebody stole five males and eight pregnant females from a mobile home near State College, in Union Township. Snakes, that is. And those thirteen pythons are apparently worth a total of $30,000. (The other 57 snakes owned by the Robinson family were left alone.) Police are looking for a suspect that was familiar with the snakes in it. ” Not just any person would grab snakes and throw them in a pillow case,” Dawn Robinson said. That’s true.

Why are they so valuable? According to the Centre Daily Times, “Ball python morphs are a special kind of python, sporting unique markings on their skin. They can grow up to 6 feet long but are commonly between 3 to 4 feet long.” [CDT]
