The image posted to the Australian Native Animals group on Tuesday was captioned: ‘A little visitor in my bathroom! Harmless green tree snake.

Green tree pythons are not venomous and spend most of their time curled up around branches, which is what this baby snake mistook the toilet roll for.

Commentators shared their encounters with snakes in their homes.

A man posted a photo of a larger snake with the caption, “Our little buddy has been here for 15-20 years.”

Others made light-hearted jokes about toilet paper being a hot item during the pandemic.

“I have to protect the buttcoin. It drives people crazy, but I think yours is safe,” one commenter wrote.

Another added: ‘Woollies wants to install new security systems to prevent people from hoarding peat rolls.’
