Eastern brown snakes are well known for both their speed and aggression, and are the world’s second-most venomous land snake—making it the second-to-last thing you want to find hiding under your refrigerator.
But that’s exactly what happened to a woman from Adelaide, Australia, when she went to the fridge to get a drink one day. She saw the snake’s tiny brown head peering up at her and called Snake Catchers Adelaide, a company that specializes in snake and wildlife removal.
That’s when Rolly Burrell came over and used a highly technical snake removal technique called “grabbing it with your bare hands and throwing it in a sack.”
It’s a good thing Burrell came over when he did. Although in the video they refer to the snake as “he,” it turns out that he was a she, and was carrying a belly full of eggs—14 to be exact—which she laid two days later.
