An Australian woman got the shock of her life when she found a large python curled up beneath her young daughter’s bed.

She immediately called Snake Catcher Noose to her home at Sunrise Beach, Sunshine Coast on April 11, Daily Mail reported. A snake catcher named Luke was sent to the house.

A video taken at the scene shows Luke initially using his bare hands to try and catch the snake. Soon after, he chooses to use a snake hook in order to avoid being bitten by the 1.5-meter python.

According to Luke, snakes are often drawn into homes when the weather gets cooler, as they seek somewhere warm and dry.
