Unwelcome passenger

A family in America have had a frightening surprise after a snake appeared on their car bonnet as they sped along at 65 miles-per-hour.

Shortly after leaving home, Tennessee couple Rachel and Tony Fisher saw the unwelcome passenger rear its head, peering in at them and their three children through the windscreen.

It is thought the reptile - believed to be a non-venomous gray rat snake - had been hiding in the car's engine after the Fishers parked it in a wooded area.

During a video filmed by Mr Fisher, his wife can be heard screaming "oh my God" while he says "I want it to fall off".

But after managing to travel as far as it could with the Fishers, the five-foot long hitchhiker decided it was time to go and slithered across the vehicle before dropping off at its chosen destination.

Mrs Fisher told the New York Daily News: "My husband saw it out of the corner of his eye and did a double-take.

"He whipped out his phone and turns it on and captures the whole thing until it falls off."

    Lucky snake as it hitchhiked on a US car. If this happens at Korea or Vietnam... the snake would have gone.....
