A photo showing a deadly snake hiding in plain sight has people scratching their heads.

Would you be willing to take a seat... knowing a snake could be just inches away?

Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 in Queensland, Australia have sent their Facebook followers wild after posting a picture of a snake camouflaged into its surroundings.

The company revealed they were recently called out to a job after a snake had set itself up in a family's dining room. 

While they were there, they couldn't resist taking a quick photo to ask their social media followers if they were able to spot the snake which was tucked away. 

They wrote: "Spot the Snake! Time for another game of spot the snake. This cheeky customer was removed from a home in Ninderry today!

"Extra points for the species!"

At first glance, the snake is hard to see but if you take a closer look you'll realise it's wrapped around the back right leg of the chair o the right hand side. 

The company later revealed all, posting: "Congrats to all those that nailed last nights ‘Spot the snake’.

"This cheeky little Brown Tree Snake decided that this was a good enough hiding spot for him.

"Brown Tree Snakes are a nocturnal species and will typically hide out during the day to avoid their diurnal predators, which at this age is almost everything from birds to ants!"
