Why has Norwich snake man disappeared from Google?

He became an internet sensation after the Google car caught him taking his 10ft snake for a walk through Earlham - like you do.
But now the legendary snake man has disappeared from our computer screens, after footage of Norwich’s streets was updated by the online giant.
Leon Kidd, then 25, who lived near where the 360-degree cameras caught him on Clarkson Road, in 2009, later emerged to be the owner of the red-tailed boa constrictor.
He said that in summer he often took the female snake, called Nibblez, for a slither in the sunshine in nearby Earlham Park.
Norwich was one of the first cities to be included on Google’s then whizzy-new street view feature, which allowed users to take an online virtual tour of the city.
The image of Mr Kidd and Nibblez was one of the more unusual views captured by its fleet of all-seeing camera cars on their travels up and down our streets.
