Insert joke about changing a bad serpentine belt here…
Australia is known for its creepy crawlies, and this poor woman just added another piece of evidence for that reputation. In an effort to help her boyfriend who was out of town, she popped the hood on his car to locate the VIN, only to find two eyes and a forked tongue staring back at her.
Terrified, she called Richie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers in Queensland.
The video starts with Richie introducing himself and opening up the engine compartment to take a gander at what caused the original panicked house call.
Cool weather brought the non-venomous carpet python onto the engine block seeking warmth, but also made it lethargic and docile enough for Richie to handle it with little chance of being bit.
Thankfully he was able to resolve the situation, but there’s nothing like starting your day with six feet of reptilian terror!
