A shocking video of a 5-metre carpet python slithering across the roof of a house in Australia before moving onto a tall tree has gone viral. The footage, posted by TikTok user @iamiandyi, has amassed over 25 million views.

The Australian family, amid their lunch, witnessed the colossal snake making its way from their rooftop to a nearby tree. The clip’s caption, “Only in Australia, you see a 5-metre carpet python in the suburbs,” revealed the incident took place in Queensland.

The remarkable footage shows the giant carpet python moving from the house roof to a nearby tree, then from one tree to another, as adults and children watch in awe and suspense. Many viewers were left wondering how the python was able to navigate such heights from the house roof to a tall tree and onto another tree, reported KhaoSod.

Snake experts explained that carpet pythons can climb trees due to evenly distributed muscles, which assist in gripping trees. However, experts cautioned the public not to approach too closely as, although typically not dangerous to humans, they will bite if they feel threatened.
