A giant snake has been spotted letting itself into a caravan during a camping trip, possibly preparing to give someone at rest an unpleasant surprise.

The carpet python, which appeared to be over six feet in length, wound its way through the open front door of the vehicle as it prepared for a meal break.

The snake and caravan were photographed while traveling in Mackay, northern Queensland, and posted to an Australian campground Facebook page.

Carpet pythons grow up to four meters in length and are ambush hunters in the dark, waiting for animals to pass by before attacking and then killing their prey by crushing it.

“That caravan now belongs to the snake,” a Queensland woman said on social media.

“A pretty good reason to just leave the caravan there and fly home,” said another man.

“Welcome to camping in Australia,” wrote another woman.

Finally, the man who posted the image admitted that the snake was actually his pet.

The male python’s name is Ziggy, the owner revealed — though it wasn’t clear if the snake came when he called his name.

The owners, Stephen and Angela, confessed that Ziggy travels with them and that his favorite meal was rat.

Others online were more positive about the huge python.

A woman saw the benefits of a friendly snake.

“What a wonderful security system,” she said.

‘Nice snake,’ agreed another man.

‘Strange to see so much fear on a camping page. I mean, come on, if you’re into snakes, maybe camping isn’t for you?’

Carpet hoses are not poisonous to humans.
