Watch out where to put your hands ( Brazil)
Author: pedrop

I received this from a VLI engineer. The U20C arrived at Montes Claros, MG (EMC) with a baby boidae snake in the upper handrail. This is a non poisonous snake called Joboia that can easily reach four meters long, with some reaching six meters long. Four sure it fell from a tree when the train was passing in the forest area.

Maybe Mother Nature thought that the handrails weren’t sufficient for safety and decided to add a Nope Rope? ;)

Thanks Pedro!

Very interesting Pedro. A 3 metre python grabbed a little 5 year old down here last week and dragged him into the family swimming pool. Lucky his Dad, and Grandad were close by to get the snake off the little boy.

thanks for the images pedro.

when in the deserts of arizona and california while working on the railroad,

LOOKING before you stepped or reached was a good idea.

be safe............

Have seen the little dude several times since on the TV news. He is very proud of his teeth marks on his leg. 
Great little kid.
