A snake is lurking in this picture, but can you spot it? The Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher’s page heeded a warning to parents and homeowners about just how easily snakes can hide in plain sight.
After an Australian found what he thought to be a young brown snake in his baby’s room right next to the bed, he gave the snake catchers a call.
The post left many baffled as they searched high and low for a snake that didn’t have many places to hide.
The snake, which turned out to be a yellow-faced whip snake, was actually hiding next to the box of diapers on the left-hand wall. The snake is only rated as mildly venomous and is not considered dangerous to adults, but would cause agonizing pain and discomfort to small children.
With snake season approaching alongside warm weather and mating season, the photo serves as a stark reminder to be vigilant about checking nooks and crannies around the home.
