Air-conditioning mechanic Kit Carson, 59, got in the car expecting to find the usual piece of paper - they tend to fall down the back of the glove box - but instead found a one-metre carpet python.
"Him and I both got a jump," he said.
"He'd been spinning around like a bloody washing machine, but the end of his tail must have been hanging out - it was all feathered and ratty."
The snake was taken to an animal hospital, where five centimeters of his tail had to be amputated, but he is expected to make an otherwise full recovery. Link -via Arbroath
