Robbie Knills was doing laundry when he saw the snake slithering in the backyard, come across a patio and then ascend the side of his house, myGC.com reported

“I didn’t know they could climb houses like that – five minutes later and I would have got the scare of my life,” Knills told myGC.com. “I am glad it was me hanging out the washing because the wife would probably never do it again if it was her.”
