Nov. 1 (UPI) -- An Australian snake catcher shared video from the rescue of a sneaky python that was found wrapped around the engine under the hood of a car.

Tony Morrison, 40, a professional snake catcher in Brisbane, Queensland, said he was called out to remove a nearly 5-foot python Tuesday and he arrived to find the snake had wrapped itself around the engine of a resident's car.

Morrison said the python had likely been attracted to the darkness and warmth under the hood of the vehicle after a meal. He said it may have been wrapped around the car's engine for several days before being discovered.

The video shows Morrison safely removing the python from under the vehicle's hood without injuring the reptile.
