The people behind my sister in line at McDonalds told her she had a stowaway under her car...

Apparently this is a diamond python.  And, fortunately, the spare type it's curled around can be lowered without actually getting up close to test your snake identification skills.

    A kitten would be much nicer.

    And Merry Christmas to you too!

My most common "there's a snake in my (hall/office/mouse cage/path)" has been browns...not as much fun. Though the mouse cage one was a python and it was way too full to bother with me.
