(UPI) An Australian snake catcher shared video of an eastern brown snake trying an apparent attempt at camouflage by hiding inside a resident's hose reel.
The video, posted to Facebook by Snake Catchers Adelaide, shows a snake catcher working to get a venomous eastern brown snake, one of the world's deadliest serpents, to slither out of the hose reel at a Darlington, South Australia, home.
The catcher said the residents discovered their hose wouldn't retract into the spool and suspected a snake was to blame.
"A couple from Darlington were extremely surprised to find out this brownie was the reason why their hose wouldn't retract!!!" the post said.Copyright 2018 by United Press International
