What do you call a snake found in a Southwest China college dorm room? Lunch. 

A group of students reportedly found the rather large snake slithering in their dorm at the Chongqing Electromechanical Vocational Institute, local media reported Monday.

But rather than call security or animal control, they fired up their hotplate.

Uploaded photos of the starving students hacking the reptile into pieces to prepare a snake stew - complete with onions and herbs - have since gone viral.

According to The Beijing News, the impromptu meal was brought to the attention of school faculty.

A teacher has since lectured the students about protecting wildlife, adding that hotplates are banned from dorm rooms.

Snakes are a regular sight on the campus, which is located in a mountainous area outside the city center - so much in fact that signs are posted warning students of snakes. 

The story went viral on Sina Weibo. Some users were impressed the students knew how to cook the snake, while others said they wanted a taste.
