Snakes on a plane? No, this time it’s in a car
A woman in the United States escaped injury and managed to safely stop her car after a metre-long rat snake came out of her dashboard and slithered across her feet as she drove. Rat snakes aren't venomous or generally a threat to people, but Kelly Swisher says the snake she encountered gave her a “nails on a chalkboard” sort of feeling. “It was rough and scaly,” said Swisher, who was running errands when it happened. “I do not know if I had my hands on the steering wheel or not. I am not the most flexible person in the world, but I can guarantee my knees were up next to my ears.” She said the snake first slithered back into the dashboard and she hoped it would stay there until she was able to get off the main road and stop. “That did not work out,” she added. “Here he comes, and he wound up in my back seat.” Washington County animal control officers came and captured the snake.
