A huge snake was rescued after it was found hiding inside the bedroom closet at a home in Currimundi, Australia, on Tuesday morning.

A video of the rescue process, posted by the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 on its Facebook page, showed the snake, a nine-foot carpet python, striking at the snake catcher as he slides open the door of the closet to catch it. The snake catcher then manages to pull out the reptile from the closet before holding it with his bare hands to show its size. The video ends with the snake catcher talking about how heavy the reptile is, before putting it in a bag.

The following day, the group posted a photo of the snake catcher with the reptile and captioned it, “What an absolute weapon! I thought yesterday’s video didn’t do him justice so I wanted to share this photo of him with you. What a cracking snake! It’s great to see big snakes like this one still getting around.”

The photo and video has since gone viral, with several people asking how the snake managed to sneak into the home. Some also said they would have a heart attack had the snake entered their home.

“Imagine opening your wardrobe door and coming face to face with that monster of a snake would give me a heart attack at the very least,” one user said. “Omg I would die if one of those things came into my house,” said the other.

The incident comes days after a huge python was rescued and released into the wild after it was found “waiting” near a dog feeding bowl at a home in Tanawha, Australia.

“ A Large Carpet Python was waiting near the family's doggy bowl! Whether or not the snake was going to have a go at the small dog who knows, but it’s best to lean on the side of caution when it comes to snakes and pets,” the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 had said in a Facebook post.
