Adelaide mother never expected to find this nasty surprise in her child’s lunch.
A baby brown snake was found hiding in the lip of her child’s lunchbox.
Adelaide snake catcher Rolly Burrell told ABC Radio Adelaide the mum was preparing her child’s lunch on Monday when she found the deadly snake.
“She’d already started packing it, the lunchbox itself has a lip around the top — snakes like to get into closed spaces so they feel secure,” Mr Burrell said.
“When she opened up the lid … she didn’t even see it and she was halfway through putting the lunch in and then she saw it and shut the lid down and gave us a call.”
Mr Burrell said it was normal for baby brown snakes to hatch at this time of year, but said he had been receiving an unusually high number of calls this year.
ARGH! That’s crazy.
