That is unbelievable. Something else to worry about if a snake goes missing......

This is the first time I heard of a snake finding its way into a computer. I usually hear stories about snakes getting stuck in laundry machines and sinks.

I guess that's better than finding a worm (virus)...lol

Too bad about the snake though..

I hear of people using computers to trap snakes. just leave the case slightly open and they go seeking warmth

Most computers don't get all that warm. this case was different because the computer had to be off for the snake to get in, so it wasn't seeking warmth unless the system was just shut down when it went in the powersupply (a running fan would normally prevent this)
