Australia is home to 5 of the top 6 most poisonous land snakes in the world. Number three is the eastern brown snake…not something you’d want to find in your car as you’re driving at 100km/hr (62miles/hr). But that’s exactly what happened to one bloke recently.
He was on a main inland road (shown on map) – but in Oz, that means pretty isolated.
He’s incredibly lucky. I wouldn’t have wanted to be in his shoes. To see what happened, watch the video below (don’t worry, it’s not scary or gross)…
Obviously it’s illegal to speed. It’s also illegal to kill a snake (to kill any native animal in fact). But under the circumstances all fines were waived.
I haven’t had a snake make its way into my car, but I have had to remove them from a lot of other places (more of that one day).
Have you ever found an unwanted visitor in something of yours?
