Photo of python hiding on Queensland deck drives the internet mad

A cheeky snake is hiding on the back patio of this Sunshine Coast home but can you spot where it is?

Even Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher Stu Mackenzie will admit this one’s tricky after he uploaded it to Facebook on Saturday.

It had people puzzled, even with the clue he gave.

“This is pretty tough so I will give you a clue. What do snakes like to make the most of in the mornings?” he wrote.

People pointed out snakes enjoy bathing in the sun but still no one could find it.

“It’s a phantom snake - surely,” one man wrote.

Some gave up.

The snake catcher pointed out the serpent, a carpet python, is resting on the lounge in the sun.

“I need to visit Specsavers,” one woman wrote.

Others pointed out the cheeky snake was nearly impossible to find.

“Sorry guys. Maybe this was too difficult,” Mr Mackenzie wrote.
