A Scottish woman unpacking Friday after a visit to Australia to see her daughter and son-in-law found she had brought back more than just selfies and good memories — she discovered a python hiding inside one of her shoes.

Paul Airlie told ABC Australia that as Boxall, his mother-in-law, was preparing to leave at the end of her visit, she thought she had seen a snake in her room. But she could not find anything even though she searched, and so she continued to pack up her belongings.
It wasn’t until Boxall arrived back at her home in Glasgow and started to unpack that she made the startling find.
