Snake travels inside a shoe over 15000km from Australia to Glasgow

The snake was in a shoe in Moira Boxall’s suitcase

She thought her son-in-law Paul Airlie and his wife Sarah had planted a fake snake in her shoe as a joke until she touched it and it moved.

A souvenir of the slithering variety caused minor chaos for one unlucky tourist who opened her bag to find not only a snake, but also its skin stuffed into her slipper.

"Somehow or other, it got from Mackay to Glasgow without being detected", Mr Airlie told ABC.

Ms Boxall, from Stirling, said: 'Three weeks ago I was woken up in the middle of the night with a crash in my bedroom.

It's the Samuel L. Jackson sequel we've all been waiting for: A Scottish woman has survived a real-life case of a Snake on a Plane, finding a python curled up in her shoe after a 9,000 mile flight from Australia. She then called Airlie, who contacted the Scottish RSPCA.

"I had a snake catcher in the next morning and ransacked my room, but found nothing".

The snake had hidden in Ms Boxall's shoe, which had been packed inside the suitcase.

Moira didn't see any sign of the reptile for weeks - until she picked up a pair of shoes she had taken with her on holiday to Oz and the elusive creature reappeared.

'When I arrived, the snake had been contained by the caller, so I safely removed the snake from the property.

Mr Airlie had down played the fact that snakes were common in Queensland during Ms Boxall's stay.

The snake turned out to be a python, which is not unsafe.

The resilient reptile - later identified as a non-venomous spotted python, a breed commonly kept as a pet - travelled safely from Mackay to Glasgow, reported the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The serpent had taken up residence in a shoe, and had even started shedding its skin during the lengthy journey.

"I don't know exactly when it shed its skin but it had to happen on the flight which is odd", Mr Airlie said.

"She said she's not so keen to come back and visit, but I suspect she will-she'll have to think about it at first", Airlie said.

It is thought the snake may be may be given to a zoo after it passes quarantine.
