(WESH/NBC News) An Orlando, Florida man opened his pantry Tuesday morning to a slithering surprise: A four-foot python!
Lenny Lichtman says when he went to throw out the garbage when he saw the snake.
"I thought it was a hallucination, I swear to God. I told the lady on the phone don't laugh when I tell you this," Lichtman said.
He called 911, and when Orange County Fire and Rescue arrived they used a pillow case to capture the snake.
They took it to a local theme park and animal reserve, where the python now has a new home, far away from Lenny's.
