A brave reptile lover who tried to rescue a rogue snake from under her car was forced to dial triple zero for help when the python coiled itself around her leg.

Queensland Police were called to a home at Samford Valley, north-west of Brisbane, after the woman became entangled with the two to three metre long carpet python.

The self-confessed snake-lover went to rescue the wild reptile from being attacked but it quickly turned on her.

The carpet python wrapped its tail around the woman’s leg and constricted, prompting her to call emergency services to help her remove the python.

She tried to pull the creature off but it soon became clear it was not keen on letting go. 

Footage taken by police shows the woman standing outside her garage with the snake coiled around her leg. 

‘The snake is still wrapped around her leg, we are going to attempt removal,’ a female officer can be heard saying.

The woman takes hold of the snake’s head as the police officer unwinds the tail off the leg, admitting the snake ‘didn’t look happy’.

She can be heard telling police that she tried to get the reptile off herself but had no luck.

‘If I had a friend over or someone we could have sorted it, I’m so sorry guys I just couldn’t deal with it on my own’ she says. 

The woman continues to apologise before one of the officers says it is ‘the most interesting job they have had all day’. 

They continue to unwind the snake’s tail off the woman’s leg before she picks him up and walks across the driveway.

When officers offer to help put the snake ‘back into its pen’ that the woman admits it’s a wild reptile.

‘It’s not mine, he’s wild… he’s a wild snake,’ the woman says.

Both police officers are clearly shocked by the revelation.

‘Oh, seriously… so how’d you end up with it?’ one of them exclaims. 

‘Rightio…’ the other says. 

Footage shows the woman putting the python back into the grass beside her driveway before thanking police.

WHAT IS A CARPET PYTHON? 

Carpet pythons are medium sized pythons that can grow up to 3.6m in length.

The average adult carpet python is 2.5m long and is the largest snake found in south-east Queensland.

They typically eat a variety of birds and mammals and is non-venomous to humans.

However a bite to a human by a carpet python can still cause damage, including deep puncture wounds.

Typically carpet pythons like to live in above ground areas such as roofs or wall cavities.

However they have also been found in shrubbery.
