Highly Venomous Snake Found Slithering Through Kids' Lego Set
"It was a very dangerous situation for the kids of the house," snake catcher Tony Harrison told InsideEdition.com.
It was anything but child's play as snake catchers found a dangerous eastern brown snake slithering through a kid's Lego set.
Tony Harrison, of Gold Coast and Brisbane Snake Catcher in Australia, said he and his partner Brooke Harrison were called to a family home last week to catch what a mom identified as a carpet python, a non-venomous snake often seen in the area.
Instead, within minute of entering the home, the pair spotted the eastern brown snake peeking through a young child’s Legos.
“It’s the second-most venomous land animal on the planet with a fairly short fuse,” Tony told InsideEdition.com. “It was a very dangerous situation for the kids of the house.”
He explained that their team relocates 500 eastern brown snakes a year, and he was especially familiar with the species since he has three of them at home as pets.
In a video posted to Facebook, Tony could be seen grabbing the snake by the tail with his bare hands, and carefully threading it into a transport bag.
The snake was then taken to Gosford Reptile Park where its venom will be extracted to create anti-venom.
