A woman in northeastern Pennsylvania, came face-to-face with an 8-foot-long boa constrictor that had slithered its way into her vehicle.

Two men have pulled an 8-foot-long boa constrictor from beneath a vehicle parked outside of a northeastern Pennsylvania medical building.

The Citizens' Voice in Wilkes-Barre reports the men pried the snake from a Mercury Mountaineer's undercarriage Thursday afternoon after one saw it wriggle underneath.

Owner Katie Hauer, who'd been inside the Geisinger Kingston medical center in Kingston borough, says "They told me I better not get in my car."

One of the men, herpetologist Cameron English, identified the snake as a Red Tailed Boa Constrictor. It was placed in a plastic container.

No one was injured and it wasn't immediately known who owns the snake.
