Mr Williams, who works as a Councillor at the Ballina Shire Council said that both pythons were about three and a half to four metres long.

He also clarified that they were not engaged in a fight but instead were mating, he told Daily Mail Australia.

Mr Williams said both pythons had been living in his house for three years.

‘They live in our ceiling.

‘Most days they come out, or they are always poking around on our ceiling.

‘They have been around for three winters in a row now,’ he said. 

‘These are carpet pythons which are harmless.

‘We have had poisonous snakes in our yard and had to call in the wilderness carers to relocate them,’ he said.

Mr Williams said his family which includes a seven-year-old boy had no qualms about living with the carpet pythons at all.

‘In fact, I like to have them around as they have managed to keep the rats and mice away from the house,’ he said.
