As a native Floridian, Tim Mokwa grew up catching snakes. For him, they were just part of the landscape.

"We used to catch snakes on purpose and have a contest to see who could catch the most when we were kids. You know, you mow your parents' yard and you saw snakes around," Mokwa says.

But seeing a snake pop its head up from the hood of your car in rush-hour traffic is a far cry from mowing the lawn. It's not exactly what Mokwa expected.

The 37-year-old got the shock of a lifetime Monday evening along US Highway 19 when a six-foot snake began slithering through his engine and up onto the hood of his car.

Mokwa was able to safely pull over and managed to take a couple of photos and a video of the snake, which he posted on Facebook.

He believes the snake slithered its way into the engine compartment of his car while he was kayaking.
