A dangerous snake is lurking around this baby’s crib, but can you spot the venomous reptile?
The snap of the illusive serpent was uploaded to the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers Facebook page after a horrified dad spotted it in the infant’s room.
It’s left dozens of people baffled as they try to locate the sneaky snake, which is just inches from the crib, next to the box of diapers by the left-hand wall.
Despite being rated as only mildly venomous, the yellow-faced whip snake would leave any young child in a lot pain if it struck.
The breed can grow up to a metre in length, and its venom causes nasty swelling and soreness if inflicted on humans.
The post on Facebook explained how the resident had mistaken the yellow-faced whip snake for an eastern brown, which is considered to be the world’s second-most-venomous land snake.
Max, a snake catcher, wrote: “A local was vacuuming his house today when he saw what he thought to be a young brown snake in the baby’s room!
“Keeping an eye on the snake he gave us a call and I rushed out.
“The culprit was actually a mildly venomous yellow-faced whip snake.”
While several people struggled to spot the reptile, others spied its hiding place by the nappies straight away.
One Facebook user commented: “It must have been lonely as it was only trying to get a hug(gies).”
