Customers in a restaurant were left terrified after a giant snake suddenly dropped from the ceiling next to where they were eating.
The huge reptile, which appeared to look much like a python, somehow managed to dislodge the tiles in the roof before slithering through the hole.
In the footage, diners can be heard chattering nervously in the background as a team of wildlife experts entered the building.
They then set about using a metal hook to secure the snake and enabling them to get a grip on its head.

The clip has been shared on several video sites in the last day, and already clocked up several thousand views .
It is not clear where the footage was filmed.
Earlier this week, a video emerged of a poisonous snake sparking panic after it dropped from an overhead compartment on a plane mid-flight.
Shocked passengers travelling to Mexico City took footage of the five-foot long green viper as it dropped onto the seats below.
The plane’s pilot was reportedly given permission to make a priority landing when he reached his destination and animal control experts alerted so they could board when it arrived and take the reptile away.
