Imagine you are from work and you walk home to two unexpected and equally dreaded visitors in your house, what will you do?
This was the exact conundrum that a man in Australia found himself in after walking home only to find two huge pythons in the living room and another one in the bedroom.
David Tait was left in shock when two carpet snakes tumbled on to 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 peaked 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.
In a separate YEN.com.gh report, a young lady, identified on Twitter as Shekinah KA, has graduated as a medical doctor and revealed the past struggle that nearly killed her dream.
In a narration sighted by YEN.com.gh on her personal Twitter handle, Shekinah indicated that she was initially rejected after she applied to study Medicine at age 18.
After the heartbreaking experience, the young girl in Shekinah thought about giving up but as fate would have it, she rather toughened up to try in a different way.
