A man got the shock of his life upon opening the bonnet of his pick-up, for under the hood was a python, measuring in the region of three metres.
The snake seemed content, napping on top of the engine.
Animal rescuers were called to remove the reptile and return it to the wild.
The man from Ayutthaya has since been inundated with requests for his car registration number so that locals can use them in the country’s lottery.
It seems that everyone wants to use the numbers 5611.
Surely if everyone plays the same numbers, the prize will be split amongst all, in the event of the numbers coming up?
No millionaires will be made following this scheme.
