- David Tait walked home from his workplace only to find two giant snakes in his house
- The man called a snake catcher Steve Brown who took the animals to a nearby state forest
- Brown said the two male reptiles may have been fighting over a mate partner before they fell from the ceiling
Imagine you are from work and you walk home to two unexpected and equally dreaded visitors in your house, what will you do?
David Tait was left in shock when two carpet snakes tumbled onto the kitchen floor of his Brisbane home before they slithered into his bedroom and living room, according to Sky News.
Tait found his house in a disorderly manner with several ceiling tiles on top of his utensils.
After realising there were snakes in his house, Tait called snake catcher Steve Brown who said the two reptiles were male and may have been fighting over a female.
Brown said the two were “some of the biggest and fattest” he had ever seen, measuring 2.8m and 2.5m long and weighing 22kg.
"I was pretty amazed at the size of them and what had actually happened in the lead-up. It was certainly something to remember as you don't see or hear of snakes falling from the ceiling very often," he said.
With fears of a third snake being in the house, Tait started to search for it but could not find it.
He said the snakes may have crawled into the ceiling of his house from a nearby bush.
“We have a lot of bush around here so you do see snakes, but I’d never seen snakes of that size,’’ Tait said.
The two snakes were relocated to a nearby state forest.
In Australia, snakes in houses is common, especially when the weather warms up following winter.
October and November are usually peak snake season in the country as it marks the beginning of their spring.
Snakes come out of hibernation and begin to look for food and to breed.
