A HUGE red bellied black snake terrified a Darling Downs woman after she found it slithering in her kitchen.

Dave Wiedman from Toowoomba Snake Catchers 24/7 was called out to the address at Goomburra, near Allora recently.

He said the snake had made its way through a hole in the floor.

"When it was confronted by some very lucky cats it tried to escape but couldn't," he said.

"The resident quickly called me and kept a close watch which made for an easy catch."

The snake was released about 5km away from the home. 

Red bellied snakes are common in woodlands, forests and swamplands of eastern Australia.

They mostly eat frogs, but also prey on reptiles and small mammals.

Their venom consists of neurotoxins, myotoxins, coagulants and also has haemolytic properties.
