One family got a shock after discovering a baby python was found hiding in a roll of toilet paper.
Snake catchers were called to a home in Brisbane’s Redlands on Sunday night to remove the reptile from its prime spot.
The baby python was hidden in the middle of the toilet roll, having wrapped itself around the steel toilet paper holder.

Social media users were entertained by reptile’s hiding place.
‘Bloody awesome at least you’re in the right place to freak out and sh** yourself if you hate snakes,’ one person said.
‘If the person was suffering constipation, I’m 100 per cent sure this little fella fixed their problem pretty quick,’ another person said.
This was not the first time a python has wound up in a Brisbane bathroom.
Last year, Elite Snake Catching Brisbane shared a picture of another reptile curled up inside an empty toilet roll holder.

Pythons are the main snake species around Brisbane, Elite Snake Catching Brisbane’s Stewart Lalor told MSN.
He said pythons were ‘pretty harmless’ but urged people not to try to pick them up.
‘If you have a snake, the best thing to do is not to panic; being bitten is extremely rare and they are only dangerous if you interact with them.’
He said people should expect to see more snakes from now on as they are most active in summer and most likely to be seen emerging from bushland on hot days.
