All the best from above – that does not seem to apply in the Australian Brisbane. Here are two snakes cracking through a ventilation shaft. The bedroom is then the arena. Snake catcher Lana Field streams the animal encounter live on Facebook. Field identifies the animals as two male carpet pythons. People often confuse this with mating, but it's a fight. They struggle with each other to see who is the stronger. The winner has the right to approach a female in the area. The up to four-meter-long animals often reside near human dwellings. However, they pose no danger to humans. On the contrary, carpet pythons make themselves useful by eating pests such as mice or rats.
