The reason why snakes are drawn to this location around your home


Source: Facebook/ Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7


A Queensland resident has been made to take a second glance at his water heater after a slithery intruder tried to keep warm during a cold winter’s day.


A carpet python was discovered wrapped around the water heater’s piping at the Sunshine Coast home before calling out a snake catcher.


Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 on Facebook shared an image of the snake disguised among several pipes and wires.


“This big guy has the right idea, using a Sunshine Coast residents water heater to stay warm,” snake catcher Lockie Gilding wrote.


He said the snake finding solace beside a water heater was a common occurrence during winter.


“This behaviour is not uncommon this time of year especially when they are trying to digest a feed!”


The company told Yahoo7 News there was a surge in carpet python call outs recently and the intruder in question was safely removed.
