Australian Woman Hears 'Sliding And Banging' Coming From Her Attic At Night (SPOILER: Snake Fight!)

September 12, 2018

This is a video of snake wrangler Max Jackson (Max Johnson would have been even sweeter) responding to a call in Mount Coolum, Queensland, Australia from a woman who complained about 'sliding and banging' noises coming from her attic at night. The culprit? GHOSTS. Just kidding, two male carpet pythons doing battle after catching the scent of a female. Hoo-ah! Get it? "Al Pacino from Scent Of A Woman." You're good.

Sure enough when I jumped into the roof cavity I found two male Carpet Pythons (each about 2-2.5m) combating! This is typical behavior during the breeding season, but not always seen. I ended up relocating both snakes out of her roof to some nearby habitat where they could continue the battle.

Ahahahahha, he relocated them so they could continue their battle. As a huge fan of doing battle, I've gotta respect that. The last thing you want as a snake in the heat of a battle is to get bagged up in a pillowcase and dropped off somewhere nowhere near your opponent when you're convinced you were just about to finish him. 'I was so close -- I'd already tore his arms and legs off' I imagine both would-be champions thinking sadly to themselves before emotional eating like a dozen rats.

Keep going for the video.

    How do we know they were fighting? Maybe it was a little 50 Scales of Grey?

    I think it's telling how many people commenting really really want this to be snake sex and not a snake fight.

    I love the battle techniques:
    I'm going to wrap around you, ok that didn't work, ok I'm gonna wrap around you harder this time...shit he saw that coming too...its like he's reading my mind.

    What heteronormative hogwash. These are clearly two gay snakes engaging in some beautiful gay sex in the privacy of their own attic. Stop judging, bigots!

    They might be mating. Snakes are a little bit like Klingons.
