A man has discovered a massive tiger snake coiled around a printer in his home office.

‘First thought was to wake up my daughter and remove myself from the house,’ he said.    

Capturing the moment on camera, Mr Edwards said the venomous snake was clearly a well-fed and ‘healthy specimen’. 

‘It looked quite healthy and may have been there controlling the rodent population for quite some time,’ he said.  

The Victorian father said it was a ‘good thing’ his dogs Yindi and Didge were not around at the time.

After ensuring he and his daughter were both safe, Mr Edwards said he phoned a snake catcher to safely remove the reptile. 

‘From there it was a case of deconstructing the kitchen until we found the tiger snake inside a wall cavity next to the sink,’ he said.  

While no one was injured, and the catcher was able to safely remove the snake, Mr Edwards said it was a ‘pretty crazy’ experience. 

‘I have become accustomed to being in their habitat, but once they enter into mine, it becomes quite different,’ he said.
