WATCH: Man steals snake from store by shoving it down his pants

Yes, this actually happened...

You've probably heard a variation of phrase "snake in your pants" at some stage in your life, but it's been given a whole new meaning after this incident in the US.

The scene was Portland, Oregon. The Crime? Stealing a snake, the shnakey fecker.

The man reportedly walked into the store and stole a $200 dollar python out of its tank.

He then shoved the snake down his pants and left the store with the reptile stowed away unbeknownst to staff.

Christin Bjugan, owner of the A to Z Pets shop, said the snake was returned to the store two days later by a man who'd purchased the snake from the thief, before hearing about its theft on the news.
