A New Mexico woman received quite the surprise when she discovered a seven foot snake underneath the hood of her pickup truck.

The woman told authorities that she pulled over after she began having engine trouble. Upon opening the hood, the driver discovered the 20 pound snake wrapped around the engine, KOAT-TV reported.

The python sustained minor injuries during the incident and it is unclear how long it had been under the truck’s hood.

Authorities believe the snake could be a missing pet and was likely under the hood to stay warm.
