Brian Adams, 41, first noticed the 9-foot albino python when he shifted some boxes after pulling into a parking lot Wednesday morning. He initially thought he was looking at a stuffed animal or rubber snake. But when he looked closer and noticed scales, he called his wife.

"Tina, you won't believe this, but there's a snake in the truck," he said.

Moments later, the python's head popped up when Adams nudged aside a small box in front of it.

"It's alive!" he yelled into the phone.
