Andrew's SNAKE Removal / Facebook
On September 14th, 2020, Andrew’s SNAKE Removal posted a video on Facebook reporting on a highly venomous red-bellied black snake they had just removed from a woman’s glovebox in her car.
The incident happened in Queensland, Australia while the woman was driving and she decided to open up her glove department to get something. To her surprise, she discovered the red-bellied black snake curled up in there as cozy as could be.
The woman said it gave her a “hell of a fright” so she stopped the car to get out of the vehicle. That’s when the lady called Andrew’s Snake Removal to come and expert snake handler Andrew himself arrived on the scene to remove the snake.
“I opened up the glove box and there it was sitting nice and content,” Andrew told his followers on Facebook. “It’s usually a nightmare to find a snake when its got into a car but luckily found this guy pretty quickly.”
Andrew went on to add that the snake was not aggressive when he was removing it from the car. The red-bellied black is one of eastern Australia’s most commonly encountered snakes. They grow up to four feet long and have glossy black upperparts, bright red or orange flanks, and a pink or dull red belly. No deaths have ever been recorded from its bite.
