Paul, 45, said: ‘I was a bit shocked to see the snake at all. Because the weather was so bad, I almost stepped on him.’
‘I’ve no idea why the toads were on his back as they can obviously swim.
‘They must just have been attracted to the snake’s scent.’

He spotted the strange sight in his back garden in Kununurra, West Australia, as three inches of rain fell in just one hour in the early hours of today.
Paul who grows Indian sandalwood, said he has come across the snake – known locally as Monty – before, and has even removed him from his house.
He said: ‘He is pretty well known locally.
‘I don’t know where he went after this.’
