Homeowners spotted a sinister creature in the reflection of their bathroom mirror after they heard unusual sounds rustling in the early hours.
A carpet python was found curled up behind the blinds on a window sill after it had crept into an ensuite of a home in The Gap, west of Brisbane.
‘After investigating the strange sounds, they found a few items on the ground after this not-so-graceful visit made its way around the room,’ Snake Catchers Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and Gold Coast posted on Friday.

The unexpected surprise comes after 59-year-old woman Helen Richards was bitten by another carpet python in the bottom when she sat on a toilet seat in her sister-in-law’s Brisbane home.
‘After I started doing a wee I got a very sharp tap on my bottom and a pain, and with that I jumped very quickly off the toilet and thought “wow, was that a green frog?”‘ she said.
A man, also from Brisbane, got the fright for his life when he lifted the toilet lid to a python relaxing inside last week.
Carpet pythons are the most commonly caught non-venomous snakes in Queensland.
However, their bites leave a substantial laceration and will cause a fair bit of bleeding.
The snakes can grow up to more than three metres in length, according to the Queensland Museum.
