- Its tail slithers up and down a wall as a musician prepares for a gig at the pub
- Snake sightings in Australian cities have increased due to rising temperatures
A large green tree snake has been spotted inside a Kings Cross pub.
The snake was filmed slithering up a wall at Hyde Park House in central Sydney on Thursday.
The video was posted on Facebook by a musician who spotted the snake before he was due to perform at the pub.
‘Just another typical gig in Australia,’ he said.

‘There’s a motherf****en snake on my motherf***en stage.’
The owners called a snake catcher but as he arrived the snake crawled through a hole in the ceiling & hid for another day.
People who viewed the photo joked that the snake was a fan of live music.
‘It’s so annoying when fans sneak backstage while you’re trying to set up,’ one person said.
‘Didn’t he pay for his ticket. That’s why he’s running fast,’ another said.
One commenter suggested using the snake as a piece of musical equipment.
‘They’re my favourite kind of leads,’ the commenter said.
‘Plug one end into your amp and one end into the guitar. Killer tone bro.’
Snake activity has increased throughout Australia as temperatures continue to rise and they look for water sources.
Sightings have also increased in cities as disturbances of their natural habit force snakes to move into urban areas.
They are encouraged to remain in the city due to the prevalence of food sources, such as mice and rats, and even air conditioning found in businesses and pubs.
