Snake on a Train!

This story from CBS Boston:

BOSTON (CBS) – There was a minor delay on the Red Line Thursday as MBTA workers and passengers searched for a missing snake.

A woman who got on the train downtown was heading toward Braintree when she said she could not find her pet snake, which she had in her big purse.
The train was delayed at the JFK-UMass stop for several minutes as people searched the car for the snake.
It was not found and the train left.
Another lengthy search was done in Braintree and came up empty.

Don't you hate it when that happens?  But, in case you ever find a snake on your train, don't worry. With only one exception, North America's species of snakes are not aggressive. That is, if you leave them alone, they'll leave you alone.

How do I know? I was a boy of the 50's and 60's when keeping snakes was cooling and I got my Boy Scout merit badge in this subject!
