Python Shops Spice Aisle Of Supermarket


Helaina Alati was browsing the spice aisle of an Australian supermarket when she came face-to-face with a huge snake.

The head of the 3-meter-long (10-foot-long) non-venomous diamond python emerged through a space in a shelf above the spice bottles in the Sydney store.

"I was in the spice aisle just looking for something to put on my chicken that night so I didn't initially see it because it was curled up way back behind the little jars of spices," Alati said Wednesday. "I kind of turned to my right and it poked its head out."

Alati, who coincidently is a trained snake catcher, said the snake's head came to within 20 centimeters (8 inches) of her own. "Thankfully, I have a background in snakes so I was pretty calm about it. It definitely shocked me a little bit because I wasn't expecting it," she added.
