A Joliet man was more than a little shocked by what he found underneath his truck hook Thursday.

A six-and-a-half-foot ball python was hanging out under the hood, coiled around the carburetor, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The snake, which was not poisonous, apparently escaped from a neighbor's house a couple of weeks ago.

A Joliet police officer says he believes the snake crawled into the engine to get close to the heat.
