A snake catcher in Australia required the help of a tractor to remove a massive deadly snake that was hiding near a home.

The homeowners had called Stuart McKenzie of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 to get rid of the reptile.

McKenzie wrote on his Facebook page Friday the reptile was hanging around the house and the family was concerned as they had  small kids and pets. 

"Persistence certainly paid off on this snake call! It took nearly an hour and a half to finally find and catch this stonker of an Eastern Brown snake!" McKenzie wrote. "...So they were happy to bring in heavy machinery to help try and find it so I could safely relocate the snake. It had last been seen going into a massive garden of Bromeliads and the family were happy for the plants to go." 

He also shared a video showing the relocation of the snake.

"I have had to damage or dismantle property with the owner’s permission of course to catch many snakes over the years. Some of these situations include pulling apart retaining walls and garden beds, putting holes in walls, ripping up floors, decks and kitchens etc," he went on to add.

The latest incident came just days after McKenzie shared a footage of a "chaotic" scene during his encounter with a deadly brown snake. The snake catcher arrived at the home thinking the reptile was contained inside a closet, but he later found out it had escaped and was on the loose in the bedroom. He later managed to catch the snake and relocate it.

"Wowzas, this call got a bit dramatic quickly. When I arrived I thought the snake was secured but I heard the lady yelling that it was on the move in her bedroom and she was up on the bed...," he wrote. "Then when I came in to try and catch it, her dog came running in and at one stage both the dog and the Brown snake were under her bed..."
