(RT) A slithering surprise literally dropped in near a desk of an unsuspecting teacher at a Mississippi elementary classroom. The school in the town of Walls is combating the snake problem as farm work reportedly forces reptiles to flee the fields.

The snakes have found refuge at Walls Elementary School. As one witness anonymously told local news station WMC, one of the snakes had fallen from the ceiling right next to a teacher’s desk.

The reason why the school is getting so much of the reptiles’ attention is that the campus is located in a field.
