It would seem that one Australian airliner could have used the services of Samuel L. Jackson. The grounded plane discovered that four baby pythons had escaped from the packaging causing the crew to evacuate the passengers and get them on a new flight. I cannot imagine the trouble you would have checking snakes in a post 9/11 and post Snakes on A Plane world, but apparently you can get them aboard a commercial airliner. The story is boring compared to the movie; since these snakes were no longer than six inches, which is nothing compared to the enormous python that devours that poor dog in the film. You can read the article here, or just check out this video to imagine what this situation could have turned into.
