SHOCKER: Massive 2.4 metre python pulled from roof gutter

IMAGINE the shock on Bob Webley's face, finding a massive 2.4 metre carpet python curled up in his roof guttering on his Tinana property on Tuesday.

Mr Webley made the shocking discovery when a painter informed him there was a snake in the gutter, which prompted a call to a resident snake catcher to help remove the reptile.

"I never thought I'd find one in the gutter; I don't normally see a lot of snakes out here - let alone a snake as big as this one," he exclaimed.

Mr Webley shared the photos of the massive python onto social media, showing the animal curled up in the gutter

SNAKES ON THE FRASER COAST:

Snake catcher Drew Hall said the dry weather was driving more snakes into Fraser Coast homes, given the need for water and shelter from the elements.

"Because it's so dry they can't find any water, so this drives them into people's ponds, gardens, pools and anywhere with shade," he said.

"I'm almost getting a call a day - that's double the amount I was getting this time last year."
