Woman Found Pythons Mating in Her Kitchen After Noticing Microwave Moving by Itself

“Not every day that happens.”

A woman in Queensland, Australia, was shocked to come home to find two giant pythons mating on her kitchen counter. The woman noticed her microwave had been moved and something (technically two somethings) was hiding behind it. She immediately called professional snake wranglers to take care of the situation, and they took photos and videos of the snakes. "Two Carpet Pythons Mating on Kitchen Bench! Wow…yes you read that correctly!" the snake wranglers posted. Their footage has to be seen to be believed—here's what happened next.

The Sunshine Coast crew took video and photos of the snakes, which they posted on Facebook under two different updates. "We arrived at a home in Buderim where two decent-sized Carpet Pythons had come into a lady's kitchen through an open window and decided to snuggle up behind the microwave! We were able to get there very quickly and relocate the two love birds back out into the bush where they belong."

Video footage shows the snake wrangler "Stu" coming into the kitchen and having a chat with the homeowner, who says the snakes entered her property through an open window. Stu gets to work, grabbing a python in each hand. They immediately wrap themselves around his arms before he puts them into a black bag. He then releases them back into the bush to continue their relationship in peace. "Not every day that happens," he can be heard saying.
