& # 39; Omg love this game! I have never seen the snake in one of the hahaha, but I am trying & # 39 ;, said an enthusiastic follower.

After allowing followers to guess for four hours, snake catcher Stu McKenzie uploaded a photo of the giant snake that stretched out in the back of a conservatory.
He also revealed that the snake was a carpet python.
& # 39; The family wanted to relax in the conservatory when they saw the python lying there with a full belly & # 39 ;, Stu told Daily Mail Australia.
Stu revealed that carpet pythons can eat rodents and native species along with opossums and small pets.

& # 39; That's why we always encourage people to call us when they find a python.
& # 39; I don't think he had eaten anything as big as an possum – his belly would have been huge – but certainly a rat or something.
Although the snake catcher said that carpet pythons & # 39; a mouth full of teeth & # 39; have and can bite, they are non-toxic and are usually not frightened by people.
& # 39; Carpet Pythons are weird, because where other snakes play when confronted with people, these guys tend to hit back or simply ignore us. & # 39;
CARPET PYTHON FACTS
Coastal carpet pythons are one of the largest snakes that inhabit the east coast of Australia.
They become 3 meters long.
They have up to 80 needle-like teeth that point backwards and can break off at a victim.
They are non-toxic and non-aggressive unless they become scared or disturbed.
They are often found in the roofs of houses.
Snakes are an important part of nature. If you have one at home, do not disturb him, call your local snake catcher who will remove it.
