STOMPer Scorpgal and her husband spotted a python curled up under the hood of a car on their way to lunch in Cantonment.
In her email, the STOMPer wrote:
"My husband was on his way to Southpoint for lunch when he saw policemen and a car parked in the middle of Cantonment Road.
"A car had stopped at the traffic light when a passer-by saw a python crawl under the car and up into the bonnet!
"The passer-by then immediately stopped the driver to inform him of the snake.
"I wonder where did the python emerge from?"
This certainly goes to show that wildlife can be found even in downtown Singapore.
This isn't the first time reticulated pythons (Broghammerus reticulatus) have been recorded entering cars; it is possible that they are seeking warmth, or simply foraging for food. Here's an earlier report about a python that crawled into a car.
At least the python in this case didn't end up like the one in this report.
