World of the Bizarre

Man finds two snakes hanging from his ceiling

By T.K. Randall

Mark Hyatt got the shock of his life when he encountered the nightmarish spectacle inside his own home.
If there's one thing worse than finding a snake in your house, it's arriving back home to find two large snakes wrapped around one another while dangling from your ceiling.

This was the shocking scenario that greeted horrified homeowner Matt Hyatt of Greenwood, South Carolina earlier this week when he opened his front door after returning from work.

"Yes, this is what I came home to today," he wrote on Facebook.
He was eventually able to remove one of the two snakes from the house but later admitted that the second had managed to escape and he had no idea where it had gone.

"Anyone want to come for a sleep over at my place tonight ?" he joked.

The footage he captured of the snakes, which can be viewed above, has since gone viral online.

Happens a lot in tropical North Queensland with Pythons or frogs everywhere. Hopefully both were caught and released by wildlife workers to live another day. Most likely they smelt a mouse or rat and followed the scent

Two males in combat, most likely. To see them doing that dangling by their tails is highly unusual, though.

I divorced my nightmarish spectacle (trying anyhoo)...Tried the old: "i divorce with thee, i divorce with thee"- then throw dog poop on her shoes. ..Didn't work. dog poo on ur shoe- she never goes away.

Eh, not as bad as a snake falling on ya when you open a barn door.

Unless it was a rattler, a snake falling on you is good luck here in these parts (spits into a spittoon) . I've had a very large and greasy looking black widow fall out of my jean jacket in the entry...always wondered if the ex put it in there...when it fell out, my well trained bug eating cat almost ate it- but i managed to squash the bugger...never heard of a black widow death here, but there are a plenty of 'em around.

That's only necessary when there's a spider in the house.

For most snakes they come out of burmation (not hibernation) early to mid February. After about ten days of being awake eating and sheading they are now ready to mate with mid May about the cut off time for breeding-but that's general guide lines not breed specific.
