“A Florida resident went viral on TikTok after a snake took a liking to her windshield and she struggled to get it off.
Earlier this month, Abbey Rostron uploaded a series of videos of TikTok showing a small snake that she found on her car that led her to pull over. The first video has received over 4.6 million views.
“I had to pull over because this dude is in my car,” she says in the clip. “I don’t even know what to do. Dude, please just get off the car. Just jump off. Be a good little snake.”
Even though Rostron says the snake is in the car, it appears to be outside the windshield, although she could have been referring to inside the hood. At another point in the first video, she films the snake while driving and takes the car to an Advance Auto Parts for assistance.”

The driver apparently kept losing track of the snake which added to her humorous takes during the videos. Eventually, the snake fell off harmlessly to the ground. A few commenters speculated that it was a non-venomous snake called a black racer. Even if some how the snake managed to get through the windshield Mrs. Rostron was never really in any danger. However, it’s safe to assume that she will be extra cautious for awhile every time she steps in her car.
While it’s extremely unlikely a snake would cause damage to a windshield, there are plenty of instances where other critters have broken through. Animals such as deer, birds, and even turtles can easily break through while you’re driving. If your windshield has been damaged by an animal or otherwise call IAS Auto Glass at 952-797-4374.
