A frustrated Noosa family has finally discovered the cause of their 'haunted' bathroom thanks to a local snake catcher.
The toilet in their Queensland home had been randomly flushing itself for days when they opened the cistern to find four-metre brown tree snake inside the mechanism.
Luke was called to the property on Sunday afternoon to relocate their slippery and 'pretty grumpy' house guest.'It was a quick catch but but it needed to be,' Luke wrote on his Facebook page. 'It was that or putting my hand down into the toilet water.'
Several impressed viewers flocked to the page to heap praise upon Luke for his quick, clean catch in such an unusual space.
'Can't believe how quick your reaction time is!' wrote one, while another commented, 'Can’t believe what strange places these snakes hide in....How the hell did he get in there?'
The video had been viewed almost 3000 times in two hours and attracted hundreds of reactions. The snake has now been safely relocated into the bush.
