One woman's recent supermarket visit in South Africa turned into a total trip when she reached for some yogurt in a refrigerated dairy and wound up grabbing a 12-foot python instead. "I don't know how it got in there, but it could have come in through the roof or the drains and it ended up in the shop fridge," store manager Martie Esnouf tells The Sun. "We have a lot of bush behind the shops and there are lots of snakes in there...The last thing we wanted to do was hurt it and it will be released safely in the wild." A snake catcher who was brought to successfully wrangle the African Rock python said that the creature was resting in state of near-hibernation, as the refrigerated case had caused the cold-blooded animal's organs to shut down.
