It must be terrifying to see a snake pop out of nowhere! But an Australian mother of a 2-year old girl hasn’t been more terrified.
On one sunny and windy day, mother Bianca Dickinson from Kaniva, Victoria had one of the scariest experiences of her motherhood. While she was taking a picture of her daughter Molly, for the clothing label ‘Little Girls Fashion’ by Jodie, a slimy, venomous and massive snake photobombed her daughter. The eastern brown snake was slithering merely inches away from her daughter. Eastern brown snakes are hailed as the world’s 2nd most venomous snake. It injects about 4mg of venom that’s enough to kill a grown man!
As she snaps her camera and her daughter smiled for a pose, she thought that the moving creature was a piece of bark flying from a tree since it was windy that day.
It was horrifying, and Molly was lucky enough to escape from the snake without being bitten.
Bianca posted the photo on Facebook which has received several reactions and comments from Facebook users. She admitted that she only knew that it was a snake that photobombed her daughter when she got home and checked her snaps.
“OH MY Golly….snakes are on the move!!! I was out taking a photo of my daughter for Jodie @twinklestardesigns and thought I saw something move! It’s really windy here so I thought it was a bit of bark flying from the tree. Looked up to see this massive brown had just passed my 2-year old 😱 I can’t believe it didn’t touch her!!! Once I was home I checked my camera and found this shot.”

We’re as glad that the 2-meter venomous snake didn’t do any harm to this sweet little girl. It may be scary, but it’s one of a kind photobomber you got there, sweetie!
