We all come home with a little souvenir from vacation, even if it's just some unwanted sand in our suitcase.

But one woman got a scary surprise recently when she got home: A 2-foot long python in her shoe.

The woman, from Scotland, had just arrived home home from Australia after visiting daughter when she found the snake.

She actually packed it in her suitcase after it crawled inside her shoe. and went on 3 different flights.

The Scottish Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals is now taking care of the snake.
