The search for the missing snake in Waveland ended late Monday morning.
Zeus is a two year old, nine foot, olive green, Burmese python, who escaped from his cage almost a week ago.
Owner Thomas Teabout says he spotted Zeus outside in the sun about ten feet from the garage where he is kept.
Local wildlife experts told WLOX news that the reptile would mostly stay close to its home and use the sun to warm itself.
"Oh, I'm glad to have him back. I was just worried about him getting out and eating somebody's dog or something," Teabout said.
Teabout has already fixed the cage so Zeus can't get out again.
