Oct. 19 (UPI) -- An Australian snake catcher shared video of an unusual capture at a home where a snake was found resting in a family's linen closet.

Stuart McKenzie of The Snake Catcher 24/7 - Gold Coast posted a video to Facebook showing the capture he performed at a home in Mount Mellum, Queensland.

The video shows McKenzie removing the tree snake from a linen closet.

"Now the linen cupboard is known for holding sheets and towels and all sorts of things but the last thing you expect to see when you open up the cupboard doors is a snake staring back at you," McKenzie wrote. "This common tree snake must of come inside to escape the wind and the rain. Tree snakes are pros and squeezing through tight gaps and entering the house. They are commonly seen around homes as they are often in search of geckos and frogs to eat."
