A 17-foot python reappeared in his Alaska home on Monday after two weeks at large.

Sam's whereabouts over the course of those two weeks remain a mystery.

The python’s disappearance attracted media attention in North Carolina, Seattle and even Germany.

The snake's disappearance caused some concern in the Alaska community. The animal care department advised residents to keep their small pets inside until the python was found because it could have posed a threat to pets and young children.
