Social media users have been dumfounded trying to find a sneaky snake in a photo of its makeshift vineyard home.
The deadly juvenile brown snake was snapped making a home out of a small gap in a set of stairs in the Wirra Wirra Vineyards, in McLaren Vale south of Adelaide on Monday.
The vineyard called Snake Catchers Adelaide who removed the snake on Wednesday, after other snake catchers were unable to remove the slithering creature the previous day.

The reptile catchers quickly snapped a photo of the brown snake poking its head out of the burrow, betwixt leaves and dirt, posting it to their Facebook page where it confused users.
'Oh my! Took me a bit to find him! Gosh he is tiny,' one confused user wrote.
'All I can see is bricks, dirt and leaves. Someone help me out here and tell me where it is please,' another user wrote, unable to find the snake.
Another user joked: 'I've been to spec savers and still couldn't see it'.
It took some time to remove the snake from the staircase that is often used by staff at the vineyard.
'He took some getting out but now the staff can have their stairs back and they're happy,' snake catcher, Ange Broadstock, told AdelaideNow.
'Safe to say they will be calling us (Adelaide Snake Catchers) from now on.'

While less dangerous than older counterparts, juvenile brown snakes still utilise a neurotoxic venom attacks a victim's nervous system.
Just over a week ago a Brisbane dad-of-two in his 60s died after being bitten by an eastern brown snake.
Brown snake's are usually active in Adelaide from September to May, however this year, their active season was disrupted by about two months.
'He had chosen a winter spot,' Ms Broadstock said.
