A woman escaped dead without even noticing, when she came face to face with one of the most dangerous snake on Earth.
This story will make you think twice about spending your holidays in Australia.
This is the cutest, smallest snake and it also the second deadliest snake on Earth. Imagine how mortifying it would be to find this cute little snake in your bathroom. That's what happened to one homeowner when she found a perfectly well-hidden snake in one of her bathroom drawers.
The woman, from Queensland, contacted the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers on Sunday, believing the animal was a harmless tree snake. She was advised to keep the bathroom door closed and to wedge a towel underneath to block any potential escape route.
But what she first thought was a common tree snake was actually a deadly Eastern Brown Snake.
Wowzers!! You would definitely not be expecting this when you open the top drawer in your bathroom. This cheeky little brown snake had found himself a nice little hiding spot. What a surprise! It just goes to show that snakes can basically hide anywhere.
The scariest part of the story is that the snake is so small we can barely see it in the picture, and that the woman almost had a near-death experience. The snake catcher left the woman relieved that the deadly serpent was taken away, but her fears and concerns came back even bigger when she realised that an encounter of this kind could easily happen again.
