This Red-Tailed boa constrictor escaped from its enclosure in a Pulaski, New York, apartment and startled its neighbor awake when it suddenly dropped from the ceiling onto the sleeping man.

The snake, as it turns out, was a pet that had escaped from its enclosure in the apartment above and had slithered into the ceiling between the two units.

Officials with the NY DEC said the snake is legal in New York and returned the reptile to its owner.
