    If there is one thing that the south has in abundance is big, weird, scary looking bugs. And, of course, snakes. Most are harmless and above all, it is a very rare occurrence that they show up with a lot of people around. Also many bugs fly so if you were on the 100th floor it might not mean anything. Even if they couldn't fly, they have this amazing ability to walk up the side of buildings, so you can run but you cannot hide.

    It moved in my hand when I yanked it off my (bare) arm.

    It was no toy, and if it had velcro on it it was on its stomach, which I'm assuming I didn't touch because when I pulled its grasping appendages from my arm I didn't feel any. If someone dropped a stuffed Mickey on your arm, you'd know the difference from a warm, living creature.

    I'm with ya Zehn, whatever landed on me was alive as well, I'm just telling myself it was one of those cute lil lizards all over the place.

    I am just waiting for the person to come on this thread and say "Once, on ToT,something alive hit me in the back of the head like it had been thrown like a major league pitcher...." because let me tell you, that baby had to have some speed on it with the force I flung it.

    So did the snake pay admission?

    And did the snake get a magic band, no, probably just an old Florida Resident AP.

    No FP+ for Kaa.

    Wow, 150 comments! Who knew this would spark such a discussion? Especially since so many don't even think its true! This combined with that strange python news story in Canada has made me quite nervous about snakes in our room though.

    Samuel Jackson or Muppets might work. But for some reason this thread has put me more in mind of Mel Brooks:

    LOL! My daughter was in Disney's Jungle Book Jr. as a school play. She played Shanti, a girl who narrates the story, and her best friend played Kaa the snake (or the head of the snake) and she sang an awesome song.

    And, OP is gone. I do find it interesting that the post about the uncle who works in the legal dept went virtually unnoticed. That's the second WDW "employee" to chime in and say they have never heard of it.

    just because 2 wdw employees havem't/didn't hear about it is no reason to not believe OP,OP has no reason to lie about it & it has too many details to be fake, i totally believe it could have happened,it's fl we have snakes everywhere,whether people see them or not,it was probably slithering along,fell & bit down trying to catch itself after the fall,that's gonna freak a snake out just as much as the person,so it probably curled into a ball in the floor area,until later on when whomever found it.just my two cents;)

    Um, okay, you can believe what you want and I (and others) can believe what I/we want. There's also no reason to believe what she says is true. That works both ways. The uncle who works in the legal dept would know, but I'm amazed how many people are so quick to believe this. It's why urban legends spread like wild fire because some people always think "well, it could happen". The "facts" the OP posted are also questionable. Was the snake poisonous? If so, a hospital visit would have been a several days stay. If it wasn't poisonous, it more than likely couldn't have bitten through clothing, bitten the clothing, but not through to the skin. Even venomous snakes aren't likely to bit through clothing. Most fangs/teeth just aren't that long. Every snake bite I know of personally was on bare skin. Usually on the foot/leg or arm like the boy talked about earlier. Just a couple of questionable things.

    Once again, why is it so important to some people that the OP be telling the truth? I'm just not that gullible and go with my gut which is pretty much always right.

    And, on the chance the OP comes back with real proof and I'm wrong, I'll admit it.

    Last night I was horrified and could not sleep. Tonight I can't stop laughing! This is better than watching tv!

    I still say Jimmy Kimmel is behind this whole thing!
