This is the moment a pair of brave cops remove a deadly Boa constrictor snake from a car engine after the owner took the motor to the mechanics for a fault.

The incident took place in the central Colombian capital Bogota after the SUV owner heard unusual sounds coming from his engine and took it to a workshop believing that the vehicle had a fault.

As seen in the video footage, two officers spent several minutes removing the three-metre-long reptile from the SUV’s engine.

Mechanics raised the car with hydraulic car lift so that the cops could easily pull the snake from under the chassis and then release it into its natural habitat.

However, workers quickly realised that a snake was causing the problem and called the local authorities to rescue the large reptile, according to reports.

According to local media, the snake was a boa constrictor (Boa constrictor) and it was taken to a secure location and released back into the wild.

Meanwhile, the local authorities are reportedly investigating how the large snake got into the motorist’s car.

Reports said that some animals are attracted to the heat of a vehicle’s engine and often venture inside to shelter from the elements.
