A Sattahip man who found a snake in his car is taking the incident as a slithering sign of good luck.
Songsit Neanhom, 45, and his family had just gotten in his black Toyota Vios outside his Soi Bonkai home Aug. 30 when he spotted the meter-long Oriental whipsnake hanging out from under the chassis.
The reptile had no intention of leaving, however. Animal-rescue officers spent 30 minutes trying to coax it out, with no luck. Finally Songsit started the engine and, when it got hot, the snake departed for cooler pastures and was caught.
The musician said he viewed the fact that the snake chose his car as a lucky sign and planned to buy lottery tickets with his license plate number.
