Though a cobra is still on the loose in Ocala, authorities did locate a 6-foot water snake inside an elderly woman's home early Friday morning.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's office, this impressive, non-venomous, banded water snake was removed by the Agriculture Crimes Unit at her home in Lake Wales, Florida.

Thankfully, neither the home owner or the snake were harmed.
