Reptile expert Stuart McKenzie initially thought he was dealing with a highly-venomous brown snake, which is considered to be the second most toxic land snake in the world.
The predator was described as a "monster" by a snake-catcher, who said it was "one of the biggest" he's caught in some time.
"You're kidding me, that's incredible," a snake catcher said, remarking on the serpent's hiding abilities.
