How to get a snake out of your car

Snakes can get into cars through the undercarriage, an open door/window. The most likely points of entry are the engine, cabin, and trunk.

Snakes like warm places because they’re cold-blooded. You can keep snakes out of your car by not leaving your doors, bonnet, or trunk open and unattended.

A snake that got into your car could cause damage or distract you while driving. If a snake is venomous, such as a rattlesnake or copperhead, then getting bitten could put your life at risk.

Recently we published an article on how to keep spiders out of your car and it proved popular, especially in this wet and then warm weather some parts of Australia are experiencing now. Snakes. They’re a completely different kettle of slithery things and, sure, there’s almost a million to one chance you’ll ever find a snake in your car, but we thought we’d talk to the experts at the Australian Reptile Park about how to keep snakes out of your car and what to do if one should appear in said car.

In a country like Australia which is just about wriggling with snakes, there are very few reports of snakes climbing into cars to find a warm dry place. Indeed, do a Google search and advice stories appear in the US, with forums lit up with questions on how to keep snakes out of cars.

Now, I grew up in the country and never once saw or found a snake in any of our cars. We did, however, have snakes in our lounge room, the laundry, and in the backyard near the wood pile. And only one of them ever escaped the snapping jaws of our dog… he was a brute of a dog who found and took on a King Brown that had been sunning itself at the base of a Hydrangea bush… it had protection and the dog did not and he was bitten a bunch of times on the face as he tried to root out the snake. He survived that encounter (thanks to the vet) and eventually killed the snake, I’m sorry to say. But I digress.

Know all about Practical Motoring

We spoke with some of the keepers at the Australian Reptile Park, and here’s what they had to say:

Question: What can people do to limit the chance of a snake making a home in their car?

Answer: Keep all doors and windows closed, try not to park your car around long grass or heavily wooded areas.

Question: Why would a snake want to make a home in someone’s car?

Answer: The snake does not see it as a “home” but simply a warm area (due to the engine possibly being run). The bonnet area also offers darkness which is attractive to snakes.

Question: Is it more likely to have a snake in your car if you live in the city or the bush?

Answer: In the bush.

Question: If people have seen a snake on their property is there any way they can check their car, meaning, anywhere in particular they should be looking?

Answer: It is more likely to find a snake in the engine area rather than inside the actual car; simply checking under the hood is sufficient.  

Question: If the doors and windows of a vehicle are closed can a snake still get inside a car?

Answer: Very slim chance though the access again would be via the engine.

Question: If you find a snake inside a car, or curled up under the bonnet what should you do?

Answer: Leave the snake be and a call a snake catcher.

Question: Do you have any interesting stories of finding snakes inside cars?

Answer: Our keepers don’t do rescues as we are based full time at the park but there has been the odd occasion when people have driven all the way to the park from Sydney with snakes in their engine asking us to remove them, but for an experienced snake handler it’s not too hard of a job to remove them.
