But a Queensland woman was left horrified after she discovered an unwelcome guest on her front porch just inches away from the doorway.

At first glance, this photo shows the door of a family home but a woman was left horrified after she discovered an unwelcome guest… So would you have spotted the snake?

The terrified resident spotted the snake coiled around the light fitting near the doorway.

Snake Catchers Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan & Gold Coast was called to the home to remove the lurking reptile.

‘The homeowner walked past this carpet python four [or five times] before she noticed it because it was hiding in ‘light’ cover,’ the business wrote on Facebook. 

Snake catcher Lana Field told Yahoo7 the woman had done several trips between her car and home before she realised the snake had been observing her from afar.

She believed the snake may have found its way down from the guttering.
