A snake believed to be a carpet python has found its way into the offices of an Australian news channel. A photographer of 9 News in Darwin first spotted the reptile curled up on a desk.
A short video uploaded on Facebook by 9 News Darwin shows the snake coiled up next to a computer in the news channel's office.
Writing on Facebook, the channel explains that on Monday, a cameraperson first spotted the snake curled up next to a computer in the editing suite.
Luckily, an employee who had experience handling reptiles safely removed the nearly two-metre snake from the office.
In the video, the employee can be seen using a wire hanger to gently pry the snake away from the computer. She then fearlessly grabs it and tries to put it in a bag.
According to Ms Limon, the snake was released into the wild.
