German police ended up pulling a snake out of a man’s pocket after seeing a “considerable bulge” Tuesday night.

Darmstadt police discovered the snake on the man’s person after they responded to a call about two men having a late night street fight, reports USA Today.

The police ended up taking one of the men into custody because of his drunken behavior, during which officers noticed what was a “considerable bulge” in the man’s pocket. The man ended up removing a 14 inch long baby python from his pants pocket, shocking the officers who were trying to take him into custody.

Police are still uncertain as to why the man had a snake in his pocket. One theory is that the snake belonged to one of his family members. Authorities are also looking into whether any animal laws were broken by the man carrying the snake around in his pocket.
