Upon hearing that hundreds of snakes invaded a Florida roadway, many would assume the chatter pertains to a movie plot, but they would be incorrect.

That exact thing happened in Sarasota on Tuesday morning.

According to a Facebook post by the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, droves of banded watersnakes showed up on Palmer Boulevard in the hours before sunrise.

The reptiles covered both the east and west bound lanes, perhaps looking to take advantage of the warmth the black pavement provides.

Unfortunately, as they blended in with the street, some were run over by cars.

Others found safety by staying close to the median.

The situation appears to have been resolved, at least for now. It is unknown if the snakes intend to make the roadway a regular early morning hangout.
