The clip also shows a group of people joining hands to rescue the reptile and release it into the wild. Shared on YouTube, the video has now left people intrigued.

The video is shared on the YouTube channel Latest Sightings. A caption shared along with the video details the incident. It explains that the incident took place at Kruger National Park. The caption further describes the reason why the snake slithered into the car’s engine. “Currently, it is winter in South Africa, and it can get quite cold. Since snakes are cold-blooded, they have been known to slither into car's engines, because they are attracted to the heat,” it reads.

The video opens to show the snake in the middle of a road. Within moments, it strikes at a car and then slithers below it. The clip then shows the rescue of the snake.
