This is Monty. He's a Scrub Python.
Monty lived on the roof of a house in Misson Beach, Queensland, Australia. For 15 years years, he had been a fairly quiet resident of that roof owned by Trina Hibberd. But early on Monday morning, he decided to pop in and visit his neighbor.
Hibberd's friend Julie Birrell was visiting. She had been asleep in bed when she noticed that there was a 16-foot long snake exploring the room. ABC News quotes Hibberd:
"We walked into the bedroom and it was hanging from the curtain drapes down to the bedside table — and that was only a third of him," he said.
"It was a good monster.
"We locked ourselves in the bedroom and grabbed him around the neck. He coiled around my arm but we managed to put him a container."
This is not the first time that Monty has had boundary issues. Hibberd first met him 15 years ago when he poked his head into her bathroom while she was taking a shower.
But Monty probably won't be a problem anymore. A snake catcher captured him and released him into a nearby water treatment plant.
