NEW MEXICO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A break-down in New Mexico led to quite a shock.

A man pulled to the side of the road to help a woman whose car had broken down, and when he popped the hood, he found something staring back at him.

It was a 20-foot python that had crawled up under the woman's hood.

The pair called police, and a lieutenant came out and took the snake off the engine, before giving it to animal control officers.

Police think it's someone's pet and probably slithered up inside the car to get warm.
