DARWIN, Australia, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- An Australian woman was startled upon discovering a carpet python had decided to make a home out of her leaf blower.
"We got a call out this afternoon for this cheeky carpet python hiding in a garden blower," N&S Snake Catcher said.
The snake catcher attempted to shake the hiding snake out of the leaf blower, but the python refused to budge.
After disassembling the tool he gently grabbed the python by the midsection and coaxed it out of the rear container.
The startled python made a desperate lunge toward the snake catcher, who quickly dodged and placed the snake in a bag.
The snake catcher estimated the carpet python was about three or four years old and simply happened upon the leaf blower while looking for a good hiding spot.
