In the clip, recorded on Saturday (May 22) Josh shows himself struggling with the carpet python which he notes is pretty large for its species.

As the snake wraps itself tightly around his neck, Josh says: “Jesus Christ!”

He then grabs the serpent’s tail and tries to disentangle himself from its deadly grip.

The snake suddenly lunges at his head, striking him near the ear and he jerks back while someone else screams in the background.

In more footage, he is seen plucking the huge reptile from a tree with his bare hands as he remarks: “Very old snake.”

He then identifies the snake as a carpet python and says: “He has a decent weight on him.”

“They are still a wild animal, so I still have to be careful,” he adds as the snake winds itself around his neck.

This comes after an 80kg snake with “100 teeth” was found hiding in the kitchen roof by horrified homeowners.

The whopping snake, which was also a carpet python, was eventually caught with the aid of a hairdryer and released in bushland away from people’s homes.

“Even though it’s non-venomous, a bite from one of these guys this size can do some damage as they have almost 100 teeth,” snake catcher Steve Brown said.

Meanwhile, an Australian living in the UK admitted he “s*** himself” when a snake fell into his kitchen as he was coming down his stairs.
