A gardener from Krems in Lower Austria had a nasty shock when a snake emerged from her groceries on the back seat of the car as she was driving home.

The woman had bought a box of bananas from a large supermarket chain and was driving home when she spotted a viper slithering out of the box. 

She stayed calm but immediately stopped her car and called the emergency services – who alerted “Mr. Rattlesnake”, snake specialist Georg Jachan from Gföhl in Krems.

The reptile expert arrived on the scene with special equipment and caught the snake. “For now I am taking care of the snake,” he told the Heute tabloid. “It’s a harmless viperine snake which looks very similar to the venomous viper,” he said.

Jachan, also known as the ‘snake Pope’ suspects that the reptile was imported along with a fruit delivery from Spain.
