Red-bellied black snakes are”one of the most frequently encountered snakes on the east coast of Australia, and are responsible for a number of bites every year,” according to the museum. The snakes are said to only bite under”severe molestation.”
MARYLAND MAN FOUND DEAD IN HOME WITH OVER 100 SNAKESEmployees at the testing center discovered the first snake on Friday, and on Monday, several baby snakes were seen, Sean Cade, the owner of the company Australian Snake Catchers, told the outlet. Cade pointed to”improved weather conditions” and an influx of snake babies being born as a reason for the increased sightings.
Cade posted a video to Facebook showing one of the snakes being directed out from underneath a trash can before being picked up and placed in a collection bag. Cade confirmed to Newsweek that the snake that had been filmed was released.”All snakes and reptiles are protected by law in Australia,” he told the outlet.
