Due to the popularity of the post of a few days ago about a snake appearing in the windscreen of a light plane mid-flight in northern Australia, here are two more that I found this week about snakes hitching a ride. I am aware that this might make you Aussies check your cars a little more thoroughly than usual for a while, and for that I am sorry ;) .
Both of the snakes in these reports thought a car might get them to their destinations faster than slithering, although the one that got dropped out of the car door might not have been able to avoid getting squished. Especially if the driver was annoyed enough.
I think if either of these cars belonged to me they would have been insect-bombed to within an inch of their lives before I drove them again in the hopes any sneaky reptiles that had set up home decided to move away from the stench!
