We got a free upgrade for snakes on a plane


So I was thinking last night while watching Snakes on a Plane that the passengers might all be safe if they hid up in first class, which they eventually did. But apparently, inflating the giant life raft to plug the hole at the top of the stairway was unnecessary.
This is what Mark Herbert, senior keeper at Brookfield Zoo's Feathers and Scales exhibit told the Chicago Tribune's RedEye:

"They make them more aggressive than what they normally would be," Herbert said. They can't climb up staircases, have thought processes or hold grudges, he added.

So the moral of the story is, if you're ever on a plane full of snakes, you better hope it's one of those fancy jumbo jets with a second deck.
