A Gold Coast truck driver has had the shock of his life after an unwanted guest hitched a ride on his rig.
Worse still, the driver only noticed his “guest” while travelling at 100 km/h along the M1.
The man left his depot at Southport this morning and was happily cruising along the motorway at Coomera .

That’s when a large carpet python decided to show its face, slithering onto the truck’s side mirror.
While most of us would be tempted to drive straight off the road, the driver managed to stay calm and pulled over his truck at Pimpama.
He waited patiently in his truck for snake catchers to arrive, who safely removed the python from the truck.
