A pair of carpet snakes hitched a ride around the world at historic Taabinga Homestead on Sunday afternoon.
The two reptiles caused a small stir in the audience as they slithered across the beams of the outbuilding where the South Burnett Chorale was holding a concert.
But the 23 singers weren’t too concerned by the extra music lovers dangling overhead!
Chorale conductor Julee-Anne Bell said the theme of the concert was “If Wishing Made It So … Around The World In Sixty Minutes”, a nod to the fact overseas travel isn’t possible at the moment.
The repertoire included songs from Kenya, New Orleans, Scotland and India.
About 100 people, plus the two pythons, turned up to enjoy the music.
The human guests enjoyed afternoon tea in the grounds of Taabinga Homestead after the show.
