Shocking! Australian woman finds deadly snake with 15 eggs under fridge (watch)

Imagine dragging your feet as you make your way lazily to the fridge to catch a late night snack and you stumble upon a huge snake with not one or two but fifteen eggs, waiting patiently to hatch! (that picture I prefer blur in my head) lol.

Here’s how reports it:

A woman in Adelaide, Australia, got a nasty shock when she went to get a drink from the fridge.
It wasn’t that she had run out of milk – she found a huge, heavily pregnant brown snake under the appliance.

Not only that, the highly deadly creature then plopped out 15 eggs but luckily, Snake Catchers Adelaide were on hand to help.

They said it was lucky she found the snake before its clutch of eggs had hatched.

Rolly Burrell from Snake Catchers Adelaide, who caught the snake, told ABC: “It’s lucky she saw the snake now or she might have been going to the fridge to get a drink later on and seen all these little critters all over the place.”
He said it was easy to catch the snake, whose poisonous venom can kill.
“I’ve been doing it for 40 years and I make it look easy,” he gloated. “When you’re doing 300 snakes a month you tend to get a little bit blasé.”

The snake was exhausted after laying all those eggs.
Because of this, she was given some rest, mice and water before being released.

The eastern brown snake is responsible for most of the snakebite deaths in Australia.
