Yahoo News Australia reports a surprising find in the exhaust pipe of a car.
A father and son were driving on the way to the bar to have a relaxing drink when they noticed something odd about the car in front of them.
Pulling up behind the car, they noticed that there was a long black object in the exhaust pipe of the car. When they took a closer look, they discovered that it was the blackened body of a snake. The snake was already dead.
Once the people in the car were notified, they did not want to touch it.
The father and son decided they would help extract the snake from the exhaust pipe.
The son says,
My Dad kinda wanted me to do it but I had all my nice clothes on and I’m a bit afraid of snakes so we were arguing about who would do it,”
Eventually, the father pulls out the snake using a pair of tongs,
We don’t know what type of snake it was but it was skinny and long. As Dad was pulling it out, it kind of stretched and then the whole thing just flew out at once.”
It was a large snake but they could not tell what species of snake it was. The snake was left lying by the side of the road as no one knew quite what to do with the dead reptile.
It is not uncommon for random stuff to become stuck in the exhaust pipe of a car but this is one of the rare instances when it turned out to be a snake.
