A carpet python was found taking a nap in a watering can near North Lakes, Queensland, footage shared to Facebook shows.
Castle said he was called by a customer who “noticed a carpet python chilling in her watering can.”
The snake, which Castle estimated was a two-year-old carpet python, was, he said, enjoying its “nice, dark, hiding spot” until Castle was tasked to remove it.
In the video, Castle explained that carpet pythons often soak themselves in water to get rid of parasites. They will also sit in water to soften their skin when they need to shed.
The snake was later safely relocated to bushland nearby to “go about his day elsewhere.” Credit: Joshua Castle via Storyful
