It's safe to say, snake catching is not for everyone. But when Ray McGibbon saw a drink can "flip in the air" he thought he'd investigate.
As he's a very accomplished snake catcher and "reptile relocator", it turned it to be a good move.
Mr McGibbon found a snake, Highland copperhead - venomous and endemic to Australia - stuck in a Coke can.
"It was trying to get in the can and hide away. It saw a nice gap and said 'I'll go in here'," he said.
Mr McGibbon proceeded to carefully cut the can open, remove the snake and place it into a bag to find a place to release it.
"You've got to be more on your game. If they're restricted, they feel more agitated," he said.
"I try to keep a calm and positive attitude. If I behave like that around snakes, I get a cool and calm response."
And that's exactly how it all panned out.
But, as always, the "don't try this at home" rule applies.
"It is a big risky job for handlers like myself, even though we've got the experience," Mr McGibbon, who recommended calling in a professional, said.
Mr McGibbon, who operates in the NSW Southern Highlands, also reminded people to dispose of rubbish thoughtfully.
