Australian dad finds venomous snake just chilling next to baby's crib

Given the bravery parents display during dangerous situations, you have to give even more props when there's a deadly snake involved.

On Sunday, a snake-catching business in Queensland, Australia, posted a subtle-yet-terrifying picture from one of their latest jobs in a child's room.

According to the caption, a man had been vacuuming around the house when he spotted a snake next to his baby's crib. He initially thought it was a brown snake, which are a highly venomous species of snakes found in Australia.

He called up Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers and carefully watched out for the snake as he waited for them to come.

The photo posted on the snake catchers' Facebook page shows the snake just before they were able to trap it.

In the photo, the hard-to-spot snake was hiding just to the left of the box of diapers. Luckily, as identified by the snake catchers, was actually a yellow-faced whip snake (which they say is mildly venomous) and not a brown snake.

One of the homeowners added an additional picture in the comments showing the snake catchers in action as they removed the snake from room.

It seems the homeowner managed to keep a sense of humor about the whole incident, given a comment she posted to Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher's profile.

Just another reason why Australians are more badass than the rest of us.
