A Pair Of Fighting Snakes Fell Through Someone’s Bedroom Ceiling—And That’s It, We’re Done 😵

A pair of fighting snakes fell through a bedroom ceiling—and the internet is just over for the day. 

The scene: a home in Brisbane, Australia.

The time: Sunday night. 

The players: two male coastal carpet pythons, some unsuspecting residents, and a local snake catcher named Lana Field.

The two snakes were fighting in the house’s air ducts when they suddenly fell through a vent in the bedroom ceiling. They continued their combat on the floor of the room, which is where the residents of the Kenmore Hills property found them when they arrived home that night around 6:30 pm.

The snake catcher filmed a video of the scene and posted to Facebook Live. 

You can watch the video here via an Australian news outlet.

Commenters reacted with grace:

And dignity:

According to the snake catcher in the video, “People often mistake this as mating but it is combat.”

Field continued:

They wrap around each other wrestling, to compete to see who is strongest … and they can go on for hours like this until one is exhausted.

Of course, to some people, falling snakes are no biggie: 

Field explained in the video that snakes often fight because a female is in the area. For the sake of the Brisbane residents, let’s hope they got that hole fixed before they went to bed that night.
