Queensland family who thought the thumping noise they heard was their ceiling collapsing is horrified to learn it was two massive SNAKES brawling in the roof space

After hearing constant thuds and creaks in the roof, a Queensland family thought it was about to collapse, but to their shock it was actually two huge pythons fighting.

The residents from Queensland’s northern beaches contacted Cairns Snake Removals to inspect their roof to find out what was happening.

What they found was two large scrub pythons up to four and a half metres long aggressively fighting over breeding rights, while another two smaller pythons – up to three metres long – watched on.

The managing director of Cairns Snake Removals, David Walton, was not surprised when he found the two large snakes locked in battle.

‘The Beaches resident contacted me about some serious noises coming from the roof space,’ he explained.

‘During breeding season, which is now, male Scrub pythons can get quite aggressive towards each other over breeding rights.

‘Sometimes to the point of biting into the back of each other’s necks. Along with a lot of twisting and thrashing about.’

‘You can imagine the sounds coming from your roof space with all of this going on!!!,’ Mr Walton, said on the company’s Facebook page.
