When Katie Hauer approached her SUV, two men told her she better not get in her car.
That's because the men saw an 8-foot-long boa constrictor wriggle under the SUV outside a Pennsylvania medical facility.
Cameron English, who owns an exotic pet store, helped with the rescue. He identified the snake as a red tailed boa constrictor, according to The Citizens' Voice.
The men had to carefully pry the snake from the undercarriage of the car. The rescue took about 45 minutes and attracted a small crowd of curious bystanders.
It's believed the snake was looking for a warm place to take a nap.
No one was injured during the rescue. It wasn't immediately known who owned the snake, which appeared to be well-fed and was likely a pet. English said he would care for the snake while the owner was located.
