By George! Slippery visitor hides inside walk-in wardrobe

THERE were no skeletons in this closet, but there was certainly a slippery surprise waiting between the clothes. 

A Flaxton homeowner was shocked to find a two-metre carpet python hiding inside a walk-in wardrobe.

The snake had coiled itself around the coat hangars, between the clothes.

One of the family members stumbled across the snake while looking for a change of clothes. 

"He definitely did not expect to find this fella hanging off the clothes rail," snake catcher Stuart McKenzie said. 

"The best part about this call was the family was happy for him to be let go outside on their property, which is fantastic."

The release location was fitting for the snake, which apparently is known to the neighbours as "George". 

"Even though it is cooling down, the calls keep coming in so keep an eye out for any slithery friends around your home," Mr McKenzie said. 

Mr McKenzie said the coastal carpet python was non-venomous and the most common species found on the Sunshine Coast. The snake grows to an average of two-metres but can grow to four-metres. The carpet snake is often found in roof spaces of homes, looking for rodents.
