How do I get a snake out of my car engine?

What do you do if there is a snake in your car engine? I wish this were a joke. I don't think it's venomous or anything, but I don't want to get bitten!

Yikes! That’s not a fun problem to have. One way to get the snake out is by using a broom or something else with a long handle.
First, make sure your car is completely off. Open the hood and find the snake, then use the end of the broom to push or lift it gently out of the engine.
Remember, the snake is scared of you just as much as you’re scared of it. So try to keep your distance in order to avoid being bitten.
If you live in a densely populated area, it might be a good idea to trap the snake in a bucket or bag and take it to a more secluded area. Alternatively, if the snake looks like it doesn’t belong in your region and could be someone’s pet, you may want to call animal control.
Finding a snake where you’d least expect it is scary! But your car insurance bill shouldn’t be. Luckily, the Jerry app can help you find better coverage at a better price.
