A pet store in Derby, Kansas, hopes surveillance footage will help capture an alleged thief.
Video filmed at Tails & Scales shows a man looking at a display case of snakes. He then grabs a snake, in its personal case, and stuffs it up his shirt.
The man then walks by a crowd of customers and heads out the door.
The snake is an rare white-coloured, blue-eyed leucistic ball python.

It was born this past summer and is worth $600.
Other stores across the state are now working with the pet store to find the exotic snake.
