A massive snake has been found inside a shocked man’s laundry room after it slithered inside and took up refuge on a wooden door.

Robin Ford was shocked to find a three metre long diamond python curled up along his basement door in Hornsby Heights in Sydney’s north shore. 

The terrifying reptile was curled up on the top of the door as its tail slinked around the front of the frame.
