You may never sleep well again when you discover the ingenious ways snakes sneak into your home

  • Alarming video shows snakes coming inside
  • Often found in many homes during the summer
  • Video shows deadly snake slithering through small opening

A large and highly venomous eastern brown snake has been filmed squeezing itself to squeeze under a door in a house.

Melbourne reptile wrestler Mark Pelley, better known as The Snake Hunter, shared the footage after being summoned to Diamond Creek’s home in the northeast of the city by owners.

“I’m often asked how snakes get into the house, so I thought I’d show you,” Mr. Pelley explains in the video.

“Oriental brown snakes – even such a large one – have the ability to flatten themselves and gradually squeeze themselves under small gaps under doors.”

“I often find them in Australian homes in the summer.”

‘All snakes endemic to Melbourne are venomous and have the ability to flatten themselves to squeeze into tight spaces,’ Mr Pelley told Yahoo News Australia.

He added that big, plump pythons found in other parts of Australia wouldn’t be able to flatten themselves like those in Melbourne

While there’s no 100 percent way to keep snakes out of your home, Pelley recommends buying draft excluders for exterior doors and making sure all doors fit snugly against the floor.

His latest TikTok video has been viewed more than 770,000 times and received hundreds of comments.

Not everyone appreciated the images.

“New fear unlocked, thanks,” one mortified viewer wrote.

Another added, “I could have lived the rest of my life not knowing this.”

A third said: ‘Now I never sleep again.’

Others asked for advice on how to keep snakes out of our homes.

The clip also drew unwanted attention from shocked viewers abroad.

‘This is #500th reason why I’m never going to Australia!’ one wrote.

Mr Pelley was recently rushed to hospital after being bitten trying to catch an eastern brown snake in a Melbourne backyard.

He was fired the next morning and was back at work catching snakes several hours later.

Mr. Pelly added that it was the first time he had been bitten in his many years as a professional snake hunter.
