Huge Snake Takes at Dip in Backyard Pool
A Queensland family’s backyard pool was off limits for a while recently, when a large python decided to take a refreshing dip.
“There’s a snake in our pool,” Jeremy Santolin’s son can be heard saying, as the family look on.
Santolin told Storyful that the snake “got out of the pool by itself within a few minutes.”
“A professional snake catcher caught the snake in my backyard and released it to a nearby forest,” Santolin said. Credit: Jeremy Santolin via Storyful
- Oh! Oh, he's up.
Oh, he's going in.
- What is he doing?
- I'm not sure if you want to go in there, bro. Oh, no, I hope he can get out. No, I don't think you should go in there. I think you should come back out, my bro. Oh, no.
- Is he gonna drown? Oh, wait, he's right back.
- He probably doesn't like the water.
- What if he goes inside one of our beanbags? You shouldn't have left him out there.
- What is he just takes--
- --[INAUDIBLE] OK, that's not [INAUDIBLE]. Wait, yes it is.
- Oh God.
- Oh, he's in the water.
- I reckon he'll be out to get out. I think he should be strong enough, I think.
- He's in the water.
- It's a massive snake.
- Romy, he's in the water. OK, now, he looks bigger. Now, you can see his-- now, you can--
- Now, you can [INAUDIBLE].
- Now, you can see the full length.
- Excuse me!
- All right, I might have to call someone about this.
- Yeah, call a snake--
- Did it die?
- No, he came out of the pool.
- Where is he going?
- It's by the side of the pool.
- Romy, that'll do. Stay close to me.
