This is the shocking moment a giant python decided to slither into a Queensland lounge room and completely freak out a group of friends playing Monopoly.

Rae Painter was enjoying hanging out with two friends in her home, passing the time playing a board game, when one of them made the alarming discovery while going for a glass of water.

The huge snake was spotted near the kitchen, and had snuck up the stars and into the lounge room, something Rae said was her "worst nightmare"

"We were shocked and didn't know what to do and jumped straight onto the chairs and were screaming as you can imagine," she told Daily Mail.

After a lot of screaming and fuss it was her friend, Tom, that made the heroic move to grab the snakes tail.

But the battle lasted about 15 minutes as the snake tried to escape under the fridge and into the bedroom, until it was finally able to be thrown outside.

Originally from the UK, it was the first time Rae had ever seen a snake in her 13 years living in Australia.

She says she definitely won't be leaving the front door open for a cool breeze ever again.
