CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Oh wow. This will give you the willies!  A Charlotte family looked up when something made a noise in their kitchen over the weekend, and it turned out to be a large black snake going for an egg on their counter.

Laura Neff said the rat snake slithered out of their spice cabinet, and descended toward a basket of fresh eggs on the counter.

“It got in through a hole in our laundry room floor, which is now covered by a VERY heavy concrete block and which will soon be permanently plugged,” Neff wrote when she posted the video on YouTube.

Neff said her family let it finish the egg.  They then used two brooms, “a whole lot of patience, nudging and encouraging,” they coaxed the snake out the kitchen window.

“Off it went to the rest of its evening,” Neff wrote.  “All’s well that ends well, but… JEEZ!”
