Picture this scene for a moment. You just arrived home one afternoon, and you expect to have a relaxing evening. As you headed to your bedroom, you flick the light on, and then suddenly you get chills down your spine. There, on your bed, you find a 7-foot-long carpet python chilling on your bed. What would you do next?
This is what just happened to a woman in Nambour, Australia.
“Let’s just say there was a lot of yelling and screaming,” Stuart McKenzie, of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7, wrote on Facebook.
The woman immediately ran out of the house and contacted McKenzie, and absolutely refused to go back inside until the snake was safely removed. When McKenzie arrived she was still outside, patiently waiting very far away from the door.
Thankfully, while the woman was obviously not a huge fan of snakes, McKenzie was, and he was able to get the snake out of the house and get it back outside where it would be “safer and more at home.”
With a little investigating, he was able to determine that the snake had gotten inside through a rip in the fly screen on the front door.
The woman doubtless set to work fixing the hole in her door right away — and will probably be checking under her bed before going to sleep for a while.
