A 7.1kg coastal carpet python made itself at home in a Branyan residence until it was removed by Kyle Hancock from Kavs Wildlife Services on Saturday morning.
The massive intruder had just eaten a big meal, making it one of the “chunkiest” pythons that Kyle has encountered.
It wasn't the biggest though. Coastal carpet pythons can grow to four metres and weigh more than 10kg.
Kyle said he released the snake into parkland, well away from harm and people.
“I wish I knew what it had eaten but my guess is a possum,” he said.
Kyle set up Kavs Wildlife Services in the Bundaberg Region a few months ago, offering snake and reptile relocations 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
He can be contacted on Facebook or call 0459 039 695.
The coastal carpet python is not venomous, but bites may cause substantial lacerations or punctures.
Wildlife Queensland says large specimens can take small suburban pets such as dogs, cats and guinea pigs with smaller specimens taking caged birds.
It's diet is mostly mammals such as rodents and possums, also some reptiles, birds and frogs.
