A Badgebup resident has captured on camera a surprise and possibly unwanted guest on her property.

Alyson Cooper took these shots of a massive carpet python on her property near Katanning, when it decided to have a sleep on her driveway.

The snake appears to be about 1.5m to 2m in length.

The snake had to be moved off the driveway.

Mrs Cooper said that had to move the snake to exit the property, otherwise it would have been run over.
