LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– It’s not a scene from Hollywood movie ‘Snakes on a Plane’ rather a real life thrill when a Scottish woman landed at Glasgow airport to find a Python (Australian snake) curled up in a shoe packed in her travel suitcase.
Moira Boxaal, who apparently survived a real-life case of snake on a plane, traveled 9,000 mile from Queensland, Australia on Thursday last.
The serpent had taken up shelter in a shoe, and had even started shedding its skin during the lengthy journey.
“I responded to a call from a woman who had just returned from a holiday in Australia who had found a small snake inside her shoe in her suitcase,” animal rescue officer Taylor Johnstone said in a statement sent to CNN.
“When I arrived, the snake had been contained by the caller, so I safely removed the snake from the property. Upon examination, the snake was found to be a spotted python which is not venomous,” Johnstone said.
“The snake is now in quarantine at our animal rescue and re-homing centre in Edinburgh.”
This isn’t the first time a snake has skipped security and made its way onto an aircraft.
In 2016, a passenger filmed the terrifying moment a snake dangled down into the cabin during an Aeromexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City.
And in 2012, an EgyptAir flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a snake reportedly bit a Jordanian man who smuggled a reptile onboard.
