April 13 (UPI) -- An Australian snake catcher responded to an Adelaide home where she discovered a "really unusual" scene: A red-bellied black snake in a family's trash can.

Ange Devery said she was called to remove a snake from an Adelaide home Thursday and she arrived to discover a red-bellied black snake taking a nap atop the trash in the family's outdoor garbage bin.

Devery said finding such a snake in the area is a "rare occurrence."

"We're assuming it's come in with a shipment of stock from Victoria and the snake has got into some packaging that was on the ground and someone picked up the rubbish and put it in the bin," Devery said.
