Jarred Smith of Sydney, Australia was sitting down to eat the other day when he noticed something peculiar: a 6-and-a-half foot python curled up inside his box of cereal.
Smith tells the Daily Telegraph, “It was super weird.” That would be putting it mildly.
“I peeked in the box, saw its head pop out and that’s when I dropped my food on the counter and bolted for the door.”
After recovering his wits, Smith called his dad and then the NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES).
WIRES member Chris McGreal came to the rescue and he too was amazed by the snake, “The python was over 2m long and I couldn’t believe it was jammed into this small cereal box. When I got there I actually had to tear the box to get it out, that’s how tightly squeezed in it was.”
I am never eating cereal again. Or visiting Australia.
