A bunch of poisonous snakes in a drawer sounds like a revenge plot of some sort, doesn’t it? You don’t just find random poisonous snakes in your house, unless you live on top of a nest of serpents. However, there is a second explanation. You might just find a nest of deadly snakes in your house if you have a toddler and live in Townsville, Queensland in Australia. An Australian mother found seven deadly eastern brown snakes in a container in a drawer in her son’s room.
Young Kyle Cummings is only 3, and when he found a clutch of eggs, he must have taken them inside, put them in a container, and put them in his room. Fast forward a few days, and seven baby eastern brown snakes emerged from the eggs to surprise the mother when she went into her son’s wardrobe. She called North Queensland Wildlife Care, and they sent an expert over to release the snakes back into the wild. The serpents, between 4 and 6 inches in length, were little but dangerous.
“Their fangs are only a few millimetres long at that age, so they probably couldn’t break the skin, but they’re just as venomous as full-grown snakes,” said Trish Prendergast, the expert who let the snakes out.
