WINDSCREEN VIPER: Venomous Snake Hitches Lift On Car

This is the moment a deadly pit viper hitches a lift on a car’s windscreen after “dropping from the sky” in eastern China.

Chilling phone footage of the venomous snake first shows it clinging onto the car’s windscreen wipers.

Then – as the startled driver tries to dislodge it – the viper slithers across the car’s bonnet apparently trying to get through a side window.

He jokes that he is taking the snake “for a drive”.

The snake had fallen from a tree onto the car’s bonnet while he was driving along Panshan Road near Huangshan, Anhui province.

And it was only when a passenger told him the snake could be lethal that he decided to close the driver’s window.

Later, he drove to a safe area to stop the car and wait for the viper to slither away.

According to local media, the snake in the footage appears to be a pit viper found in the Dabie Mountains.

The rare viper, which lives in the shrubs and overgrowth of the Dabie Mountains, was first discovered in 2011.
