Oct. 10 (UPI) -- An Australian snake catcher said a deadly serpent found hiding in a home's curtains was able to slither into the house using a cat door.

Darren Keiller of Snake Catcher Geelong posted a photo to Facebook of the eastern brown snake, one of the most venomous snakes in the world, after he extracted it from the curtains at the home in Bannockburn, Victoria.

Keiller said the snake apparently slithered into the home through a cat door.

"Most cat doors are in the middle of the door, and they can't climb up into the corner," he told 7 News. "But this particular one was in the corner of the door so it had to corner of the building to climb up into."

Keiller posted a photo to Facebook showing the snake slithering off into the wilderness after being released. He said the reptile was "a whole new snake" after returning to its natural habitat.
