Default Snake in the Engine Bay of a Vitara Brezza

This is an article from http://www.cartoq.com.
A snake was found curled up in the engine bay of a Vitara Brezza, which was in the workshop of A.M.Motors Kozhikode. It was captured and transferred by the workshop personnel. It’s a new one on me, as I was always under the impression that snakes will not end up in the engine bay, as its hot place, but as this shows one should be prepared for anything.

The video is here....

Probably the reason why it ended up there. With the monsoons and the generally cold weather, it might have went up when the engine was still warm (but not fully hot).

Scary to say the least.

A few months back, one morning I got the shock of my life when a small cat jumped out of the engine bay when I opened the hood of our 800 for routine checks. And the cat looked back at me as if I'm an ill mannered person. From that day on, I knock on the hood before opening it. Manners count everywhere.

Few days ago in a similar incident, a snake was found hiding in a Honda Activa.

For the snake's sake, if not for theirs, they might have done better to call in a pro!

Can't blame the snake, as these poor creatures have no place to stay. any dark place is home. Their general habitat has all been taken over, and quite a few have been killed in the bargain. Two days back i had snake crawling near my back door, it was a pit viper, pretty poisonous fellow. I chased it away into the fields behind, dead set against killing them. Of course very rarely are they seen. I remember back in the days when I used to reside in Mumbai, I have seen a cobra mating behind our house in the Airport colony.
