Do you remember the popular saying, “There’s a snake in my boot!” from the 1995 film “Toy Story?” Well, snakes hiding in boots just became a horrific reality.
An Australian woman was stunned to find the eastern brown snake snuggled up inside her warm and comfortable Ugg boot.
“’It’s chilly enough for Ugg boots today,’ thinks this eastern brown snake,” Snake Catchers Adelaide wrote in a post on their Facebook page.
The woman immediately contacted Snake Catchers Adelaide when she found the deadly animal, which contributes to more snakebite deaths than any other reptile in Australia, according to Reptile Park Australia.
Snake catcher Rolly Burrell said that the snakes are “just starting to wake up from their sleep” after a long winter.
“Their mating season has started so they’re all horny and hungry,” Burrell told the BBC.
