A motorist in Clearwater, Florida while driving home watched as a six-foot long black snake emerged from beneath the hood of his car.
The man, Tim Mokwa immediately drove into a nearby parking lot, and instead of running away, he pulled out his phone and began to record the reptile as it slid around his car.
When speaking to reporters, Mokwa said “I did close my AC vents. I was like, ‘I do not want it to sneak in this car. We used to catch snakes on purpose. It used to be a contest, who could catch the most snakes in one day when we were kids.”
He had just spent the weekend kayaking in Weeki Wachee Springs State Park so he believed the snake must have crawled into his car during his trip home.
“Snakes come natural in Florida just like rain in the summertime,” Mokwa said. “I’m just glad it wasn’t poisonous.”
