Snakes on a plane

MELBOURNE, Australia - Four baby pythons escaped from a container aboard a passenger plane in Australia, leading to a search that forced the cancellation of two flights, the airline said Thursday.

A reptile expert searched for the 6-inch-long snakes but did not find them. It was not known if the snakes were still on the plane or if they had somehow escaped outside after the plane landed.

In the meantime, the plane missed two flights it had been scheduled to fly and the passengers were transferred to other flights.

When the snakes were not found, the airplane was fumigated and it returned to service on Wednesday.


You just know these things are going to turn up in someone's luggage or something.

I wouldn't complain, particularly if they were spotted pythons (likely the case, given how small they are). They're dang cute, and a couple of free stowaways would make for a nice present.
