Meet the Fishers of Memphis, Tennessee.

Everyone has taken the family out for a drive, but Tony and Rachel Fisher and their kids' recent drive ended up on You Tube.

Soon, they were joined by an unexpected companion A four to five foot snake crawled onto the hood from the engine compartment.

Rachel was driving, and Tony reacted --by grabbing his camera.

"It had to be about 4-feet long, it covered the entire hood of our Yukon...Yeah it stretched across our windshield," said the startled family. "And the next thing I know the thing's snaking up through the hood of our car and it just came straight up out the left side."

The Fishers believe that the snake crawled inside their engine compartment and when the motor heated up from driving, the snake crawled out.

So, as the Fisher clan drove down the expressway trying to decide what to do, the snake made it's own decision to leave the car, probably to its own detriment.
