Has anyone had a snake in their car? What are the odds? I'd hate to be driving along and have a snake come out of a vent or something.

More likely would be a Palmetto bug. Remember to budget for a good exterminator on a regular basis.

Yeah I'd say you're more likely to have a palmetto bug or a cat in your engine before a snake.

I can handle bugs and spiders but a snake would probably have me crashing my car.

Ever seen a Palmetto Bug in real life? https://www.pestwiki.com/best-roach-bite-guide/ Almost worse than a (harmless, maybe not a cotton mouth) snake when they fly/jump in and land on you.

Lol DC Fairwinds...where are you getting all this from? What are you reading or watching about SC because you are asking some colorful questions.

Snakes in SC are no more prevalent than anywhere else. I've seen a couple, my girlfriend saw one outside her door the other day, but it's generally harmless. We don't have giant boas running around, and I've never known snakes in cars being a problem. Only thing I've found in my car is ants.

Ugh, googling on the internet and tv. I watch a show called Snake City where a couple in Africa remove venomous snakes for people. I'm sure I'm just picturing the worst case scenario and scaring myself for no reason. I like to be prepared and know what I'm getting into so I research a lot. But, that might not be the best thing in regards to freaking myself out about snakes. LOL

More likely to see something like this, than have them come out of the vents.

That'd not be good, not good at all.
