Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers Ross McGibbon and Richie Gilbert needed dual strength when removing this eight kilogram, three-metre carpet python from a Yandina home. The huge reptile was curled up on a kitchen bench and had clearly just eaten, having no intention to move.
“This huge Carpet python was found on a kitchen bench after consuming what we suspect was a large possum or possibly a cat from the neighbourhood,” Richie said.
“I will admit an extra hand was useful when we had to lift the heavy snake onto the floor. We then found a nice tree hollow to release the snake where it will spend the next couple of weeks digesting that huge meal.”
