A woman from Australia had a very odd experience this week after she discovered a carpet python snake coiled up in the middle of her dining room table. On Friday, Gold Coast and Brisbane Snake Catcher posted the video on social media. Needless to say, it made most of us shake our heads.

The snake entered the home located in the town of Jimboomba. In the video, the woman told the snake trapper she found the snake sleeping, but had kept a close watch over him to make sure he didn’t decide to hide in the house somewhere else.
Tony Harrison, the snake catcher, said the reptile had recently eaten – likely a rat and may have thought it was resting in a tree and not on a dining room table.
“However the rat has come in, [the python] has probably followed it. They are a very common snake and with you being in such a bushy area here they are a little more common,” Harrison stated in the video.
“He’s probably just followed it and then thought he will chill on this timber ledge here, which he thinks is part of a tree but it’s not, it’s someone’s dining table,” he added.
Harrison said the snakes are actively hunting day and night and are prevalent in Australia. The snakes kill by suffocation and their favorite prey include small mammals, birds and lizards. They can grow to 10 feet, but are not venomous, however if someone gets bitten by one, it is recommended to get a tetanus vaccination.
