The Queensland family returns from a picnic shocked to find a snake in their car

ONE Queensland family have been shocked to find a large carpet python curled up in the rearview mirror of their car.

The family had been visiting Mango Bay in Queensland’s Moreton Bay region when they returned from a picnic to discover the snake.

They called snake catcher Josh Castle, who put his someone in to safely remove the uninvited guest from the “distressed” family’s vehicle.

Sir. Castle said the snake snuck into the car through cracks in the windows, left open by the family to keep their car cool.

“Snakes love to squeeze into tight areas, including under motorcycles, under tires, etc.,” Mr Castle said.

He added that the wet weather may have caused the carpet python to seek shelter.
