Snake in jeep

While driving East on HWY 90 in Ocean Springs MS. I felt something cold on my arm. I look over at the red light and see a grass snake lying on my door and arm. Went 2 more miles down the road to Wal Mart parking lot and I could not catch him. Got him out when I got back home. I guess he got in the jeep when I had the windows down. And NO I DIDN'T WRECK!!! See picture below.
I guess he wanted a little A/C LOL!!!

This situation would have ended very badly for me.

That'd be the only reason for me to douse the cab in gas and burn it to the ground. Jesus I hate snakes.

If I didn't crash getting it stopped, I would have done the same thing.

I had a spider rappel straight down in front of my face one morning. Scared the crap out of me and I was swatting the thing and duckin and jumpin around like a little girl. Now you got me nervous and I think I will have to do a quit pre-trip inspection for all things that slither and crawl since the top is off now.

I had a tree frog hanging out in the door moulding one morning but the snake would've have become the proud new owner of nice white Jeep

That's pretty cool you could have kept him as some kind of jeep mascot. I caught a rattle snake at work the other day and almost got fired when I took it in the office to show my boss who is scared to death of snakes. Lmao!!!

@ Dianeakamommy. I'm glad I'm not. It could have ended badly for me and the snake if I was.

Come on everyone. Its just a little snake. I would have welcomed the Jeep companion for a few miles before I set him free.

Um uh yeah...as a matter of fact snakes are the only thing that will grab my attention in an absolutely off-the-wall hysterical panic. I ABSOLUTELY hate snakes of any kind. Especially in closed quarters such as this. Love to watch the documentaries of them on TV but no touchy feely stuff.

I would've screamed like a little girl and not felt the least bit embarrassed about it. Soiling my pants, on the other hand, may have turned my completion a shade of red.

Snake in a Jeep, that's pretty cool,

Ya know ya'all need to come down here and hang out in the Everglades for awhile. I took a buddy out to my shed to show him the old '84 Softail, I grabbed the sheet that covered it and flung it off, the 3 foot red rat snake landed on me, ran down my arm, slithered between my buddies feet and straight out the door. We just looked at each other and busted out laughing. Scared the hell out of that snake.

I think there's a big one out in the shed now and then, every once in a while I go out there and a 2X4 or other piece of wood is knocked off a shelf, I fully expect one day to have a 12' Python drop on me. I've looked but can't find anything. Maybe it just comes in once in a while chasing his lunch. Haven't found any snake shit, kind of indicates it ain't livin' there.

I will camp in a hammock when it starts getting cold at night, don't really want to sleep on the ground when the rattlers are looking for a warm place to crash "o)

Thanks for letting the snake out after the ride. I don't like the contact and feel of snakes, BUT I respect it as a living being. I have the same thing happen with bugs.

There was one day when I had gone hiking to a park along the dirt trail along a bayou. The next day, I straightened my bed for the day, and I saw something drop to the floor beside my bed. It was a worm of sorts. I realized that the day before, I had laid clothes on the bed after getting back from the trail. Maybe the worm came from that trail, so when I went back out the following morning to that same trail to hike a different portion of it, I brought it with me so that I could put it back as close to its place as I could. I put it low on a tree and put my finger next to it on the tree. It crawled up to my finger and stayed there for a minute before moving on. When I see spiders and other bugs, I take them outside so they can live where they belong.

I had never encountered snakes of any kind in the wild except when I was with Dad, and he was always stopping to shoot them. I would see them when I was around other people, but never by myself until this past May in a local park. I saw two of them minutes apart, actually, but they scurried away, though. I always keep my distance from them, that's all.

Snakes are fine the look at & watch from afar, but the minute one touches me I freak. I'm not a snake fan myself, but I do leave them alone, but if one was in my Jeep I would definately freak out (& hopefully not crash my Jeep!)
