OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City mechanic got quite a surprise while replacing brakes and rotors on a vehicle.

A mechanic technician at Beck’s Garage was working on a fleet vehicle that needed new brakes and rotors recently.

As he removed the rotors, he spotted something that looked like rope wrapped around the axle.

He soon realized that it was the body of a snake.

The driver says the vehicle is used constantly and is not sure when the snake curled up on the axle.

Beck’s Garage says this is something they definitely don’t see every day.
