Boa constrictor under car hood
A backyard mechanic popped the hood on his car Saturday to check the fluids and found a boa constrictor on the engine.
The Stoughton Police Department said a resident called its office after finding the snake. It was safely captured by animal control officers who responded to the scene.
Animal control will keep custody of the snake for the time being. There was no information about how the boa constrictor got under the car hood.
Boas can reach lengths between 3 and 13 feet.
