VIRAL: Boy Wakes Up With Snake Wrapped Around Arm

Everyone’s biggest nightmare is to discover a snake in their bed when they awaken. Even worse, the snake bit your palm twice before wrapping its body around your arm.

An Australian boy’s nightmare came true for him in the state of Queensland. The 3-foot-long coastal carpet python had to be removed from a Whiteside family’s home at 1:30 a.m. local time on February 8.

“Snakes are often found in people’s homes as they seek cooler areas in the heat of the day,” Brown told Daily Nation Pakistan.

The snake in question was fortunately non-venomous. In Australia, carpet pythons are widespread and can reach lengths of up to 13 feet, however the majority stay under 8 feet.

In a post on Facebook, Brown said that it looked like the snake had entered through a hole in the ceiling which used to connect to an air conditioner outlet.

Brown said that, while the incident might look like an unprovoked attack on a sleeping child, this was certainly not the case. “Snakes don’t attack people,” he said. “They will only bite when they feel threatened or are harassed by humans. This snake only bit the child due to feeling threatened and most likely was rolled on in the child’s sleep, causing it to defend itself.”

Despite the fact that the species is non-venomous, the boy’s wounds should be treated at the nearby hospital because python bites can still be quite damaging. For instance, they are capable of slicing through important arteries and nerves, which causes a large loss of blood.

Fortunately, according to Brown, the youngster was “fine and just quite shaken.” He is currently doing great and is anticipating returning to school with a cool tale to share with his friends.

In order to keep it away from people’s homes and roadways, the snake has been moved into some adjacent wilderness.

Brown advised against attempting to trap a snake on your own if you ever find one inside your house. Call a specialist to move the snake, he said. Taking issues into your own hands could result in hospitalisation or, worse, death.

In Australia, encounters with snakes seem to be frequent occurrences. A 4-foot tree snake was discovered in a Queensland man’s toilet a few weeks ago, while a lethal eastern brown snake was discovered in an office printer by a Sydney receptionist.
