A python was found next to a wet stuffed bear after it seemed to have eaten before regurgitating it, thinking that the toy was prey.
A resident contacted Cairns Snake Catchers after they noticed a noise coming from the backyard pool filter shelter.
Cairns Snake Catcher Matt Hagan was called to remove the snake from the house in the Trinity Beach area.
A python was found next to a wet stuffed bear (in the photo) after it seemed to have eaten before regurgitating it, thinking that the toy was prey.
After the investigation, Mr. Hagan discovered that the four-meter snake was next to a wet teddy bear that was missing an eye.
According to Mr. Hagan, a potential prey smell in the stuffed animal could have triggered the snake and tricked him into believing that the teddy bear was a real prey.
"Pythons are famous for swallowing strange prey ranging from barbecue tongs to electric blankets or even curtains," he told The Cairns Post.
The amelia of Morelia, more commonly known as the python, is known to be the longest snake in Australia, which can grow up to seven meters in length.

The shrub thickets are also known to be good tree climbers due to their muscular bodies. This is also where they typically wait for their prey.
These pythons are typically yellowish brown or purple brown with brown or cream spots on their bodies.
Sweeping pythons are not uncommon in Queensland, as they are known to live in rainforests and in thickets.
