When in doubt, blame the serpent.
A sneaky snake slithered its way into a substation in Oklahoma City and managed to leave much of the city in the dark.
According to a spokesman for Oklahoma Gas and Electric, the creature knocked out power to 10,000 customers for a few hours early on Thursday.
News 9 reported that electric company workers who arrived at the Lone Oak substation in the city, they found the responsible reptile still at the scene.
They got the lights back on by 4 a.m., the electric company said.
