A typical Arizona experience captured on video

Is Arizona the Australia of the United States?

One might think it’s when you’re scrolling through Instagram or TikTok, because for the most part, many people encounter some of the scariest creatures while in the Grand Canyon State. I’m talking about scorpions, lizards and snakes!

It should be no surprise that these creatures come out of the woods from time to time; after all, Arizona is in the desert. However, it can still come as a big surprise when you encounter said creature. If it does, there’s not much you can do, maybe call pest control? For the most part, you can safely let the creature go on its way. Or you can make a viral video about it!

That’s exactly what Lauren Kay did when she found a new friend who needed a ride! Watch it below!

That’s right, Kay had a snake on her windshield! Or, as many in the comments decided to call it: a windshield viper!

Many in the comments joked that it was a typical Arizona experience and that none of their snake friends would believe it. Also, the song choice is perfect!

Arizona is home to a variety of snake species, including venomous and non-venomous. Some of the notable snake species found in Arizona include the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, one of the largest and most common venomous snakes in Arizona, known for its distinctive diamond-shaped pattern and rattle tail, and probably for That’s why their baseball team is called the Diamondbacks!

And the Mojave rattlesnake, another species of venomous rattlesnake found in Arizona, characterized by its light coloration and neurotoxic venom, which is what many in the comments said our friend on the windshield was.

Although it’s a pretty funny video, I hope Kay found a way to release the snake without any problems!
