Carpet Python Tries Its Best to Evade Capture by Queensland Snake Catcher

A carpet python tried its best to avoid being captured by a snake catcher in Queensland, Australia, but ultimately failed in its mission.

Footage posted to Facebook by Joshua Castle, who runs Josh’s Snake Catching and Relocation in Brisbane, shows him wrangling the slippery serpent at a home in Kallangur.

“We received a call to Kallangur some nights ago. This fella was waiting at a rat bait station,” Castle said in a January 6 Facebook post.

“We caught him, but he was rather difficult to bag, with two attempts to get out before we could tie the bag,” he wrote. Credit: Joshua Castle via Storyful
