The python was shown in a video clip wrapped inside Croc baby shoes in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast in southeast Queensland.
One remover said the snake was likely moving easily around the house due to the flooring choices.
“It’s a big commute,” he said.
“They have tiles and they think they slide across the hall and the dining room.”
The family called the specialists out of concern for the safety of her two children and a new puppy.
Removers said the snake was likely a kelpak or brown eastern as they made their way home.
Keelback is a small, non-venomous snake found in northern and eastern Queensland, Western Australia and northeastern New South Wales.
On the other end of the scale, the eastern brown is a highly venomous snake common throughout eastern Australia – specifically Tasmania.
