But for the first time on Monday, the caller wasn’t exaggerating. “This was the largest snake I have come across in 27 years,” Harrison said. “The poor old lady who opened the front door to see it there got the fright of her life” The giant albino Burmese python was found in the Gold Coast suburb of Oxenford. With the snake weighing more than 80kg, Harrison said it was lucky for him the reptile was good-tempered. “Burmese pythons are from overseas, so he is obviously someone’s illegal pet … he had been in captivity his entire life, he is used to being held.”

But a missing tail and scars across its body suggested the snake had lived a rough life. Burmese pythons are an illegal species in Australia. After the massive snake was bagged, Harrison’s first call was to the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries to collect the illegal animal.
