A TEACHER thought that her primary school pupil was just playing the fool when he told her that there was a snake in his schoolbag.

China Press reported that the teacher found the snake alive upon checking the boy's bag at the school in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur.

The daily carried a photograph of the snake lying beside a pile of textbooks and the bag, which has since gone viral on social media.

Speculation on social media was rife that the snake could have hidden inside the bag to avoid the heat outside.
