Talk about an unwelcome guest.

According to CNN, farmer Ben Mostert of Karoi, Zimbabwe, made a frightening discovery last week when he popped open his car hood: a huge African rock python.

In a video making the rounds online, Mostert carefully removes the snake from the vehicle. He and another man carry the python into the nearby brush as Mostert's son shouts, "It's a rattlesnake! It's a massive snake!"

Mostert has dealt with the snake before. CNN reports that the python "was somewhat of a permanent fixture around his family's house." He said he even removed it from the family's chicken coop earlier that same day.
