Huge snake falls through gym's ceiling because even indoors isn't safe
So you think you're safe from snakes inside? Not in Australia.
Chantal Vaughan, the owner of Bokwa CQ gym in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia walked into work on Tuesday and discovered a large hole in the ceiling of her business.
Vaughan told The Morning Bulletin that she figured it was just a possum, so she went on working like it was nothing. Big mistake.
"I didn't think too much of it and I thought, 'I hope it's not a snake,'" Vaughan told The Bulletin.
Guess what? It was a snake.
On Thursday Vaughan received a text from her cleaner, informing her that she found a massive snake inside the gym. We're pretty sure that message warranted a phone call, but we're not judging the cleaner for sending a text.
So, that means that Vaughan went a full two days working at the gym with a huge snake creeping around, and nobody noticed.
"I don't know where he [the snake] was between Tuesday and Thursday, but I was teaching classes here and I don't know where he was hiding," said Vaughan.
Vaughan put a call out to a local Facebook page that identifies and relocates snakes. She called the first number on the page and some professionals came out to take care of the intruder. The snake was safely relocated to a more appropriate location.
Fortunately, the snake didn't pose much of a problem, probably because it was so full.
"He was really well behaved actually because he was so full, you can clearly see that he had a possum in his belly," Vaughan explained.
The good news is that the gym no longer has a possum problem.
