MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C.  - A python that slithered away after show-and-tell at a school in South Carolina has been found.

Media outlets report that a student brought the ball python to Laing Middle School in Mount Pleasant to show during science class on Friday. Later in the day, it was discovered the snake had made a break from the plastic foam container in which it was kept.

School officials called a wildlife removal company. More than five hours later, the python was finally found lodged in a gap behind a cabinet.

School officials did not say how long the python was but sent a message to concerned parents saying the snake was not poisonous and there was no danger to students.

The subject line of the message was "Happy Friday the 13th."
