However, she was able to capture the creature in her selfie and sent the photo to Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7’s Stuart McKenzie so he could help identify the reptile. The selfie, which was shared by Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 on Facebook, has received more than 600 reactions so far.“A lady here on the Sunshine Coast sent me this incredible photo from when she was relaxing in the bush recently and decided to take a selfie and didn’t realize she had a snake only meters away from her also enjoying the sunshine,” McKenzie wrote on Facebook. “When she checked the selfie and noticed the strange object in the corner of the photo she turned around to see the snake disappear back into the bush.”According to McKenzie, the snake could have been a red-bellied black snake. The Australian Museum said this type of snake, which is found in Australia, has a medium to robust build, is venomous, and tends to “freeze”and hide to avoid dangers in the wild.More on Geek.com:Toronto Zoo Saves Woman Bitten By Poisonous Snake in Thailand‘Sunbathing’ Snake Scares Mailman Outside North Carolina HomeGinormous Python Devours Entire Crocodile in Horrifying Swamp Photoslast_img read more
