"Buddy" the boa has a new home, after escaping from his cage at Greenville High School in Maine, then getting away from the police.

The two-foot-long boa constrictor disappeared on May 12, prompting a big search at the school. They even moved everything out of the room where Buddy lived, including an old computer printer.

Turns out, Buddy was inside the printer and no one knew it until the school gave it to a student to take home and dismantle.

The Bangor Daily News reports the student gave the printer to a friend's mom, and Buddy decided to peak out Thursday afternoon in the woman's home.

A police officer got the snake into a cat carrier, temporarily. Buddy made a break for it in the cruiser, but was captured.

Buddy now lives with a teacher.
