According to the post, shared on March 15, the snake was lethargic and recovering from an injury. "The scrub python may have been ran over by a car at some point," says the post.
After being examined by a vet, the python was rescued and released into the wild.
Scrub pythons can grow up to eight metres long and can feed upon animals as huge as wallabies, reports Cairns Post.
"Big snakes like these often span the whole width of the road and are susceptible to car strikes. Snakes often cross or warm themselves on roads at night and can be hard to see, so be careful if you do see a small stick or a large log on the road at night as it might be a snake!" he writes on Facebook.
"Ok I do NOT want to see one if these!" says one Facebook user. "OMG! That's freaking huge!" says another. Click for more trending news
