CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A family in North Carolina received a terrifying surprise in their kitchen last weekend.

Laura Neff says she was enjoying a run of the mill Sunday afternoon when she heard a noise coming from the kitchen.

When she went to check it out, she found a large rat snake crawling out of her spice cabinet and into 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.

After the snake finished eating the egg, Neff and her family used two brooms, “a whole lot of patience, nudging and encouraging” they were able to get the snake out of a window.
