WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- The Mills family were on a peaceful drive home after a camping trip when they noticed a snake chilling on the hood of their car.
- The whole family was terrified, but it was quite some time before they could pull over.
- They were finally able to continue on their way when the snake, clearly unbothered, safely slithered away into the forest.
Rebecca Mills and family were on a relaxing drive home after a camping trip at the Granite Gorge Nature Park in Australia. Suddenly, they realized they weren’t alone.
A snake was on their car!
On the video shared by Mills, she wrote, “You’ve heard of snakes on the plane … well we had snakes on the range.”
Though the Mills family were freaking out, they continued to drive on as they tried to figure out their next move. Meanwhile, the little hitchhiker seemed unbothered and just chilled on the hood of their car, bobbing around in the wind.
Their daughter was terrified of the whole situation, but David, Mills’ husband, managed to joke about the snake being his pet.
Mills told ViralHog that they had no choice but “to drive for quite some time” while they looked for a safe place to pull over.
When the family finally stopped their car and pulled over on the side of the road, the snake moved even closer to the windshield, that everyone started to freak out again!
In the end, Mills’ husband was able to safely get the snake away from their car and onto the side of the road.
As the snake slithered away into the forest, the family was finally able to continue on their way.
The encounter truly got them hoping not to run into any more hitchhiking snakes.
Here’s the full video of the snake on the car:
