New Jersey State Police say they received a call Friday Morning about "a python dropped in a toll collector's basket at the southbound Essex tolls."

Yes it was a python! A big one!

The actual story, though, is that the snake wasn't in a toll collection basket - but in a broken aquarium near the Essex Toll Booth on the Garden State Parkway.

Luckily, it all ended well for people and for the snake.
