A video was taken by a snake catcher showing two male pythons “fighting” in a cramped roof space of a home in Queensland, Australia. Stuart McKenzie, also known as the Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher, arrived at the scene after a resident reported a loud banging noise in the roof space.

When McKenzie arrived there Wednesday, he spotted two carpet pythons involved in an intense brawl. According to McKenzie, the snakes were likely fighting over a female python.

“We don’t get to see this very often and I was pretty stoked to witness this,” McKenzie wrote on Facebook. “This is going to be a common occurrence over the next few months and if you are lucky enough to see it for yourself be sure to send us through a video of it.”

McKenzie removed both snakes from the scene and released them into a nearby area.

“Off you go. Sort it out,” McKenzie joked in the video. “I’m sure there’s plenty of females here to fight over.”

According to McKenzie, springtime in Australia brings several venomous pythons out in the open, engaging in various activities, including fighting and mating. He said residents must be careful as these reptiles might be seen in their living spaces.

This isn’t the first time two pythons were caught in someone’s home. In July, two mating pythons crashed through a couple’s roof in Queensland. Matt Hagan of Cairns Snake Catcher came to the couple’s home to safely remove the reptiles that were estimated to be over 16 feet in length.

In a post on Facebook, he wrote: "Breeding season is off with a BANG....in the roof... Extracting this dynamic duo was no easy feat and ultimately resulted in the ceiling giving way as these snakes made a particularly dramatic entry into the office!"
