A snake that managed to reach a middle school’s courtyard in Saudi Arabia stirred panic among the all-female student body as it coiled itself around the shoe of one of the pupils, the Saudi Gazette reported.

Administrator Munira Saleh Al Joufi killed the reportedly sizeable snake before it hurt the student.

While it is unclear where the snake came from, the school is located near a mountainous area where there have been excavations, which may have prompted the reptile to leave its original habitat.

The school administration cleared the courtyard where the snake was spotted, evacuating the students to the building’s upper floor.
