When the hungry critter is presented with a cauldron of mini pumpkins in this YouTube video, he savors every single delicious bite. Groaning and snorting – and sounding a lot like a joyful Julia Child fawning over ingredients in her kitchen – the adorable animal seemingly gets closer to exploding with each piece (which would be extremely painful for everyone involved on account of those spiky spines).

Look Out! 6-Ft. Long Pet Boa Constrictor Escapes in Ohio

A 6-ft.-long pet boa constrictor accidentally slithered away from its Ohio owner on Sunday, and local police are currently on the lookout for the creature.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the snake escaped from its owner in Delhi Township over the weekend while it was outside being fed; the owner later realized it "wandered off."

The report says that the Department of Agriculture advised that this type of snake – which is permitted as a pet in Ohio – tends to scurry away from people or commotion. But authorities also caution that the snake will want to snuggle somewhere warm in cold temperatures, so home snake checks are advised.
