So far Sutton has only been able to locate two of the snakes from his collection, which includes black-headed pythons, north-western albino carpet snakes, and water pythons, some of which are up to 13-feet long, according to the Border Mail.

"I found two slithering along a footpath near the house," he told the paper. "I'm waiting to hear someone scream because they have come across one."
