The yellow and white python was reported missing from a home in Chilwell last week.
A neighbour in Blandford Road in Chilwell found Lavender who had been missing since 13 July.
Police had issued an appeal last week as a hunt for the 8ft long snake was launched.
It is possible that a drop in temperature caused Lavender to leave her hiding place and look for food.
‘Lavender, the missing snake from Blandford Road Chilwell, has been found. Nottinghamshire officers would like to thank everyone for their support during the anxious times of his disappearance.
‘Lavender is beautiful pet and is back safe at home… ssssssssssafe and well.
‘Officer 1188 Jones had the opportunity of seeing Lavender this morning before he had his much needed feed.
