    New Delhi (Sputnik): A biker in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai unwittingly gave a lift to a scaly stranger on his way to work. According to reports, the rider was alerted by another biker who spotted the snake slithering under the rear seat of his Royal Enfield bike. The man had ridden several kilometres with the stowaway serpent.

    In a video of the incident which is going viral on social media, the biker can be seen using a twig to remove the snake from his bike. People can be seen gathering near him on the side of the road. The snake realises that the free ride is over and slithers into the nearby bushes.

    According to wildlife experts, it was a Boiga Trigonata, commonly known as cat snake, which is semi-venomous.
