Sometimes things happened out of luck box when we do not expect it, a mechanic working on a Vauxhall Vivaro got the shock of his life when he discovered a python locked inside the bonnet of the vehicle.
The snake, which belongs to the nine-year-old stepson of the vehicle’s owner, had escaped a fortnight earlier when its tank was accidentally left open overnight.
It was discovered at CSN Autos in Wymondham in Norfolk where the Sunfire royal ball python, measuring more than a metre long, was curled up on top of the engine.
Sophie Turner, 30, said she thought the garage owner was ‘winding us up’ when he first rang her partner Jim Catton, 32, to let him know about the car’s hidden passenger.
She said her son Ellis got the snake, named Gav after his late uncle, in May.
Speaking of the snake’s escape, she said: ‘He had his bedroom window wide open, his bedroom door was shut. The snake obviously slithered out.’
She said she heard a neighbour’s son scream that evening and wondered why, and the next morning her neighbour said the boy thought he had seen a snake.
They laughed about it at the time, she said — but her partner later found that the python was missing.
She said that Ellis was ‘over the moon to have Gav back and that they were lucky that the snake was still in the car as they had been driving around in the vehicle for the last two weeks.
‘He had a mouse a few days before he’d gone and that would’ve helped with his survival,’ she said. ‘He went into the engine under the bonnet to keep warm.’
The basking zone for pythons ranges from 30C to 32C.
They are not venomous and use constriction to kill their wild prey.
Lotus Cars worker Mr Catton cycled to fetch Gav from the garage with a pillowcase.
Chris Newell, the owner of CSN Autos, said that the mechanic who found the snake ‘didn’t really react at all, which made it quite funny, to be fair.
