The snake slithered across a yard on Atrium Circle in Pine Hills around 1:45pm Saturday then made a beeline for the vehicle. The car's owner, John Capo, witnessed the snake go toward his Nissan Maxima. When Capo lifted the hood, he saw it resting on the engine. Suddenly, the snake slithered beneath the engine and coiled itself around a hose." Click here for the whole story
