An engine hiss is always dangerous.

A 10-foot python made itself at home Thursday under the hood of a Ford Mustang in south Florida.

The car had been taken to a repair shop in the north Miami suburb of Dania Beach because the check engine light was on, local Fox affiliate WSVN reported. When workers checked the engine, they made an unconventional repair decision: calling the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The wildlife officials captured the snake and told CNN that it would probably be used as an education animal.

Burmese pythons, considered an invasive species, have overrun parts of Florida because they have no natural predators in the state. Floridians are encouraged to kill the snakes if they encounter them.
