Australians are scratching their heads after being asked to find a snake deep in the bush.
A photo has been shared on the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers Facebook Page with social media users getting the hint that the reptile was a “fan of climbing.”
The snake was not easy to find in a sea of leaves and branches, but some eagle-eyed Aussies managed to eventually spot the carpet python hanging from a tree.

The python had slid into the side of a tree and was seen hanging in the branches – much to the frustration of those trying to guess where it was.
‘I will never go to the bush again,’ wrote one terrified person.
“Okay, they camouflage so nicely I could never find them,” said another.
Fortunately, although carpet pythons can grow up to four meters in length, they are not poisonous and not dangerous to humans.
While their bites can cause serious harm, those who see them are urged not to worry as they will only attack if they feel threatened.
Carpet pythons are common throughout Australia.
