This Venomous Snake Was Found Hiding Among Shoes

A Queensland household has enlisted the help of snake catcher Stuart McKenzie to catch a snake that was slithering across their floor. McKenzie had a hard time catching the snake, as he can’t see it amidst all the shoes lying on the floor. He was still able to catch the yellow-faced whip snake at the end, managing to root it out of its hiding place under a shoe.

The Yellow-faced Whip Snake is a venomous snake, but is not considered dangerous. However, a bite could be extremely painful, with much local swelling.
