In the 2006 film, snakes are deliberately released on a 747. en route to Los Angeles.
On Monday September 17, a baggage handler in Melbourne, Australia upon opening the cargo door of a Qantas passenger flight found a small crocodile loose in the hold. The reptile had escaped from its container during the two hour flight from Brisbane, Australia.
The reptile was safely re-captured without a problem and no baggage handlers lost a hand or finger.
The airline and cargo handling company Australian Air Express are investigating how the crocodile got out of its cage.
