A massive reticulated python was pulled from a household drain pipe on Indonesia’s island of Java.

Residents and rescue workers teamed up to drag the the huge snake our of a drain under a house in the town of Kudus, on central Java.

Reticulated pythons, the largest in the world, can reach up to ten metres, and are widespread in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia.

While they are normally fearful of humans, it is believed the destruction of their habitat caused by human development has led them to venture nearer to residential areas.
