AN AUSTRALIAN woman got a Christmas surprise of a different kind when she discovered a dangerous snake resting on her flip flops.

According to Sunshine Coast Daily, the unnamed woman from Caloundra on Australia’s east coast got the fright of her life on Christmas eve when she spotted a juvenile Red-bellied Black Snake coiled on top of her flip flops. The venom of this kind of snake can be deadly, although it is not always fatal.

A photo of the shocking discovery was posted on the Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers Facebook page.

“A Caloundra resident got her Christmas present a little early this afternoon when she came home to find this Juvenile Red-bellied Black Snake curled up on her thongs at the front door.... does it get any more Australian than that??” said the post.

Commentators joked that the snake “looks like a new anti-theft device”.
