Tiger Snake Beats The Heat, Found Hiding In Air-Conditioner

Summer in Australia means two things -- air conditioning and snakes, so it was only a matter of time before the two joined forces.

A couple in Little River, Victoria, were left quite shaken after they noticed a tiger snap dangling from their bedroom air conditioner.

Professional snake catcher Stewart Gatt -- who also goes by "Stewy the snake catcher" -- was called in to handle the situation.

Some of the 30-minute removal operation was filmed, showing Gatt struggling to coax the venomous snake out of the machine.

In Victoria it's illegal to kill snakes and those which are removed from houses must be released within 5km of where they were caught.
