Group Of Mates Shocked After Python Crawls Into Pool Table
If you've ever played pool, you'll know that every shot counts.
It's not just about trying to sink your ball; you have to be more strategic than that. You have to be able to hit your ball and make the white get into a position that snookers the other player.
But imagine trying to line up your ball and you knock it ever so close to the pocket and as you move around the table you see two beady eyes staring up at you.
That's what a couple of mates in Brisbane, Australia encountered when they were enjoying a round of pool.
They called Brisbane Snake Catchers when they realised the two little eyes in their pool table belonged to a python.
"When you're having a causal game of pool with your mates and this snake pops up to greet you with a cheeky grin," the snake-catching service wrote Facebook.
"Make sure you check your pool table pockets before sticking your hand in."
The snake catching experts didn't indicate how long the slippery little sucker was hiding away there but news.com.au reckons it was trying to find somewhere warm to hang out.
Because it's getting colder around Australia, many snakes, including pythons are trying to find a warm spot. But don't freak out if this happens.
"Generally speaking, it's of no concern (and) they do more good than harm, and we often recommend leaving them be and coexisting with them," Brisbane Snake Catchers said.
"However, if you have small outdoor pets or if (the snakes are) disturbing your sleep at night it might be worth having them relocated."
A similar organisation recently posted a photo on their Facebook page showing just how camouflaged these creatures can be.
A family from Buderim, Queensland, called the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers (SCSC) to do what they do best after they found a python in their backyard.
To highlight how well-hidden the snake was, SCSC shared a picture of the sofa area on the veranda to their Facebook page and invited people to 'spot the snake'.
Hundreds of people commented, most of whom were indignant that they couldn't find the snake.
To be fair, it was pretty impossible, given that almost all of the legless beast was hidden behind the cushions.
Fortunately the following day - just as people were beginning to doubt if there was ever a snake there at all - Stu from SCSC shared a video of him catching the discreet serpent.
