Pardon me a moment, while I pull out the usual Samuel L. Jackson reference and dust it off: passengers on an Aeromexico flight experienced a real life Snakes On A Plane moment on Sunday after a large green snake slithered from the ceiling to greet his captive audience.

Passengers on the flight from Torreon to Mexico City caught the moment when the snake emerged from behind an overhead baggage compartment and dropped partially into the cabin on video, and of course, posted it to social media. One traveler called the appearance of the “flying snake” a “unique experience”:

The airline said the flight made a quick landing and the stowaway snake was captured by animal control, CNN reports.

As for how the reptile ended up on the plane in the first place, the airline isn’t quite sure yet.

“The procedures carried out for this flight are currently being evaluated to determine how the animal entered the cabin and measures have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future,” Aeromexico said in a statement to CNN.
