There aren't many things that can bring a newsroom to a standstill, but Monday afternoon, something did.
A snake believed to be a carpet python on Monday found it's way into the offices of an Australian news channel.
A cameraman of 9 News in Darwin first spotted the reptile curled up on a desk.
Program Manager Alexia, who has handled snakes before on her property, used a coat hanger and a bag to capture the snake with sales executive Myk assisting her.
The snake was released into the bushes outside the newsroom.
