A deputy removed a large blue indigo snake from a bathroom vanity at a home in Bee County, Texas.

The Bee County Sheriff's Office on Saturday shared photos of the ordeal, praising Deputy Lindsay Scotten for capturing the reptile, which authorities said was approximately four feet long.

"Good job Deputy Scotten," the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook, adding that blue indigos are non-venomous and eat venomous snakes.

Police said the snake was not harmed and released back into the brush.

Authorities also noted that there has been an increase in snake calls due to the warm weather. They advised the public to be aware of their surroundings.

“If you encounter a snake in or around your residence, you can contact the Sheriff's Office for assistance,” according to authorities.
