A 1.5-metre carpet python has been busted trying to find relief from the intense Brisbane heat by hiding in a couple’s toilet.

The snake crawled in on Wednesday afternoon and made the toilet its new home.

‘They had seen it a couple of times and hoped it would go away but it hadn’t,’ snake catcher Lana Field told 7News.

‘(They were) not overly frightened but probably just a bit uncomfortable,’ Ms Field added.

She said in summer snakes often find their way into pipes in search of cooler conditions.

‘They find that the bathroom or toilet is the coolest room in the house and from there find the water.’

And it’s not the first time a snake has been busted in a Brisbane toilet.

Gold Coast Snake Catchers were called to a property in September to remove a brown tree snake hiding in a family’s toilet.

The whole incident was filmed and uploaded to Facebook.

In January a python was found curled up in the bottom of a family’s toilet in Charters Towers.
