Many hands join in to help as an anaconda snake at the Oklahoma City Zoo has dental floss taped to it's head and along it's body as it is measured at the zoo in Oklahoma City, Thursday, July 26, 2012. The floss and tape are necessary because it would be nearly impossible to stretch out the snake. The anaconda weighed 152 lbs. and measured 16 feet. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)

A snake on a plane actually grounded a flight to Dubai


Remember the movie "Snakes on a Plane"? That was almost 11 years ago.

But on Sunday, an actual snake grounded an Emirates flight to Dubai, the BBC reports. It's not clear what kind of snake it was or if it was venomous. 

The plane was searched and the snake was found before takeoff.  No one was bitten or otherwise hurt by the snake.

And in Japan, a python found its way onto a Japanese bullet train. 

Unfortunately, Samuel L. Jackson was nowhere to be found.
