Imagine finding a 10-foot-long python in your car. This nightmare became a reality for a Florida based business.
Wildlife officers were informed of the sighting called at a business in Dania Beach, Florida, on Thursday morning. The team arrived to remove the Burmese python, which was curled up in the car’s engine compartment, as per a post on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Facebook page.
Maor Blumenfeld said that the snake was found when people opened the car’s hood to investigate the check engine light.
Blumenfeld also captured a video of one of the wildlife officers removing the snake from the blue Mustang, while another person tried helping him get the snake into a bag.

CNN quoted FWC spokeswoman Carli Segelson as saying that agency staff have the snake and it will probably be used as an education and outreach animal.
In August alone, Florida officials removed 5,000 pythons from the Everglades, as per reports.
