There are many secrets kept in a women's purse, although a snake is rarely one of them.
A lady from Mumbai caused quite the commotion after such an incident in her hotel in Mudumulai.
After completing a sight-seeing tour of the area the woman and her husband checked into a hotel at the Queen of Hills.
Upon arrival the woman opened her handbag
to see a two-foot long snake wriggling around inside.
She threw the bag in the air and screamed, however snake-catchers soon arrived at the scene and caught the intruder.
The 'wolf' snake is a non-venomous species and is thought to have slithered into the ladies handbag as she toured the resort.
It has since been released by officials into the nearby Kallhatty forest and was unharmed during the ordeal.
