“My worst nightmare!”: Woman’s terrifying discovery in shopping centre car park
A Christmas shopper was in for a terrifying discovery after they spotted a huge snake making itself comfortable inside a car grill in a shopping centre car park.
The snake was seen slithering into the grill of a black Kia at the Sunshine Plaza car park on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
Taking to Facebook, the horrified shopper posted a photo of the incident which garnered plenty of attention from users.
“Never driving again,” said one user.
“Set the car on fire,” said another.
“This is my worst nightmare!” said a woman, with another agreeing with her sentiments, saying, “Sent shivers down my spine.”
Snake catcher from The Snake Catcher 24/7 Sunshine Coast, Stuart McKenzie, said coastal carpet pythons are “the most common snake that we deal with here on the coast.”
He advised locals to remain vigilant as snakes will become a common sight during summer time.
“Snakes in general are going to be on the move a fair bit over the next couple of months,” Mr McKenzie told Yahoo7.
“I’d say this snake had just come in and climbed up the levels, probably up the side of the building and then straight inside to get out of the rain.”
According to Mr McKenzie, peak time for snakes is January, closely followed by December.
