This was the nightmarish moment a pensioner's foot was bitten by a python as she slept.
The gran was completely unaware as a camera filmed the slippery serpent making its way towards her bed. The curious snake got so close that it mistook the woman's twitching foot for a threat before attacking.
Only after reaching for her torch did she discover the reptile. Pest control finally captured the snake sitting on top of the toilet bowl.
The woman seemed uninjured from her night time ordeal.
