"If that's not it, that looks eerily like another slippery head," a third posed as they drew a red circle.

While a fourth guessed: "To the top right near the bottom leaf of the succulent plant."

They company later posted a zoomed in version of the pic, showing the snake slithering onto the patio, just inches away from the swimming pool.

"Omg that took me forever!!" one user commented.

"There he is…cheeky little critter," added another.

Experts from the Snake Catchers group suggested that the reptile, which appears to be a serpent, may have been next to the pool for a reason

A spokesperson for the company told Newsweek: "Snakes will often use pools for reasons such as helping shed their skin or to rid themselves of external parasites.

“People can also help make their pools fauna friendly by providing equipment to assist the animals to exit the pools.”

"It's not just snakes that will utilize pools, other animals such as rodents, lizards and even large mammals such as koalas can see a pool as a valuable water source. Pool toys can help animals get out of pools.“
