An esaped snake has been reunited with its owner after spending three weeks under a car bonnet.

Wilson, the 2.5ft-long corn snake, was taken to North Somerset Reptile Rescue after being found in the car in Hampshire.

The RSPCA said the car’s owner had spotted the snake poking out of her car and then three weeks later found it next to the engine.

Vet Sonya Miles said the ‘very lucky reptile’ suffered only minor injuries.

“The very tip of his tail was missing, probably from getting stuck in the grill, and he has some small burns or abrasion on his face and back. But he’s been one truly lucky snake.”

The snake was reunited with his owner following a poster appeal in Farnborough, reported the BBC News.
