Pythons crash-land into man’s kitchen after fighting
    2020-09-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TWO large snakes crashed onto a man’s table in Australia after falling through the ceiling in his kitchen.

David Tait discovered the snakes after returning from work to his home north of Brisbane. After the crash, the Coastal Carpet Pythons slithered off to the bedroom and living room. They measured 9.5ft (2.8 meters) and 8.2ft (2.4 meters) long. Snake catcher Steven Brown later relocated the reptiles to a forest near Tait’s home.

Brown said the two snakes were male and appeared to be fighting over a female snake before they crash-landed.

While the two male snakes have been found, the third is still missing. He told Sky News: “I was pretty amazed at the size of them and what had actually happened in the lead-up. It was certainly something to remember as you don’t see or hear of snakes falling from the ceiling very often.

“There’s no nest there, but it’s hard to say if there was another one in the ceiling as I was unable to inspect it due to minimal space between the roof and ceiling.”

He said Tait is “luckily” uninjured as he was not home at the time of the crash. “He is just hoping no more come through the ceiling until he can get it fixed,” he added.

October and November are usually peak snake season in Australia. Snakes come out of hibernation and begin to look for food and to breed. (SD-Agencies)
