Python Travels 9,000-miles Aboard Flight Hiding In Woman’s Shoe

An Australian python has ‘enjoyed’ a long flight hiding in a woman’s shoe which she kept in her suitcase.

A Scottish woman survived a serious scare after finding a python curled up in her shoe after a 9,000 mile flight from Australia.

Moira Boxall was shocked to discover a live spotted python in her suitcase after traveling from Queensland to Glasgow on Thursday.
The serpent had taken up residence in a shoe, and had even started shedding its skin during the lengthy journey.

The incident brings to mind the 2006 cult film “Snakes on a Plane,” in which Samuel L. Jackson plays an FBI agent battling a crate-load of deadly serpents on board a flight.

But rather than putting in a call to the Oscar-nominated actor for help, Boxall rang animal protection organization the Scottish SPCA, which took the snake into quarantine.

“I responded to a call from a woman who had just returned from a holiday in Australia who had found a small snake inside her shoe in her suitcase,” animal rescue officer Taylor Johnstone said in a statement sent to CNN.

“When I arrived, the snake had been contained by the caller, so I safely removed the snake from the property. Upon examination, the snake was found to be a spotted python which is not venomous,” Johnstone said.
“The snake is now in quarantine at our animal rescue and re-homing centre in Edinburgh.”
