Australian baby chasing deadly snake discovers nest with 110 eggs
A curious Australian toddler chasing a deadly snake has discovered snake nest with 110 eggs from several deadly snakes in the family’s yard.
Zmeelov from the wildlife sanctuary were called home on March 9 Sydney, Australia where the family said they had a problem with snakes. At one point, the family said there were at least ten deadly snakes crawling around their yard.
“[They] they said they had a problem with the brown snake, which we have a lot of, but it turned out to be a little different,” Wild Conservation said in a Facebook post.
Wild Conservation officials reacted and began digging in the resident’s yard, where they found 110 hatched eggs of the eastern brown snake. They believe that eggs originated from several female snakes for the last few year s.

They also believed that females formed a community or annually chose a nesting site. Beneath the concrete slab, Wild Conservation staff also found a 3-foot red-bellied black snake – another deadly snake – and a 2-foot-long adult eastern brown snake.
“The first pale brown came out after Kane did some digging,” Wild Conservation said. “Then as we raised the slab, a 3-foot red-bellied black snake shot out and was quickly caught, and after looking around a bit more, Rachel spotted a 2-foot eastern brown snake crawling out from under the slab at full speed.”

The conservation organization said the large snakes were found with opaque eyes and rough skin, possibly due to the abundance of food in the area, such as frogs, skinks and young snakes.
“We will soon return there to observe the removal of the path and safe movement any other snakes,” Wild Conservation added.
Eastern brown snakes are responsible for more snakebite deaths than any other species in Australia. The snake is native to eastern and central Australia and southern New Guinea and it is a notoriously aggressive snake known for biting humans when they are stumbled or surprised. It can also move at 12 miles per hour.
