San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

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.
