A Queensland woman was recently left petrified after a giant python helped itself to a big meal before slithering into her back yard. Rini Steenwinkel was alerted to the presence of the snake when her neighbour yelled over the fence to warn her of a crocodile, the Cairns Post reported. The reptile turned out to be a five-metre python – who had just eaten a fully grown wallaby (inset). According to Cairns Snake Removals, the snake and wallaby combined weighed in at about 40 kilograms. The snake catcher says he had to call in a friend to help move the reptile, as it was too large to be put in a bag.
