A woman found an unexpected visitor in her house, later realizing the guest had been living with them for weeks.

Ali Skipper, who lives in Orlando's Baldwin Park neighborhood, found a large python hanging in her bathroom, Fox 35 reported.

Skipper posted pictures of the 4-foot-long ball python writhing by her sink on social media, asking for recommendations on how to deal with the discovery.

"There is a snake in my 2nd story bathroom!!! Who do we call? I'm freaking out!!!" Skipper wrote on a Baldwin Park Facebook group.

She believes the snake had been living under her fridge for weeks before she moved into the house, most likely left behind by the previous resident.

Skipper said the python was removed and relocated safely.
