Two giant pythons caught in the heat of the moment have broken through a ceiling in a couple's house – and a snake catcher has warned that it is far from unusual.

Matt Hagan out Cairns Snake Catcher was called on Friday after a couple noticed that the hoses, with a combined weight of almost 40 kg, started to crack the ceiling.

Mr. Hagan arrived on the site south of Cairns in White Rock, where he discovered the two five-meter-long scrub pythons.

The experienced snake catcher said it was not uncommon to find snakes in roof spaces and that retrieving them can be quite difficult.

& # 39; I had two options, one option I had was to use a five-meter ladder and climb into it, but I decided not to because it is a bit dangerous, & # 39; he said.

Mr. Hagan decided to remove part of the roofing to gain access, but the already bursting ceiling finally made way under pressure.

& # 39; Once they fell through and ended up in their office, all hell broke loose & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; I had to go downstairs and subdue two snakes one after the other. & # 39;

Hagan said this type of calling is far from unusual during the breeding season that lasts from July to the end of September.

& # 39; It can get pretty wild when men fight each other to impress women.

& # 39; Occasionally, these interactions can result in strange odors flying through different rooms, and even structural damage to your house in the form or ceiling stains or cracks, & # 39; he said.

But there is enough that homeowners can do to ensure that their characteristics are not torn apart by reptiles.

& # 39; You can set up a gutter protector to prevent them from entering the house, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; Also don't let trees grow too close, because it really rolls out for them. & # 39;

The snake catcher said that people should not worry too much because newer homes are generally free of large trees – and the snakes themselves are not harmful to people.

& # 39; They are big and scary, but they are not dangerous, & # 39; said Mr. Hagan.
