Amazing video has emerged of a Queensland teenager removing a massive python from the underside of a ute with his bare hands.

The clip shows the brave youngster, named in media reports as Oli Wardrope, being totally at ease as he wrangles the huge carpet snake from the vehicle's undercarriage.

With nowhere to escape if things turn nasty, the lad, with his dad looking on, grabs the snake then shimmies out from under the car and deposits the reptile in a sack.

"I got his head, I got his head, I got his head," he tells those watching on at one point.

"F*****g hell lad, that's a big snake," the sack-holder says as Wardrope reveals the size of the snake.
