A huge snake that has lived in the roof of an Australian home for 10 years has tried to move into the master bedroom.

Trina Hibberd, from Mission Beach in Queensland, woke on Monday to find the 5.2m scrub python named Monty stretched from her lounge room to her bedroom.

Monty managed to turn on a light and knock over a lamp before snake-catcher Dave Goodwin arrived.

Goodwin said the 40kg snake was “choking his arm to death” before he transferred it into the tub to capture it.

Monty has now been transferred to a sewage pond, where it is hoped he will take care of a rat infestation.
