Deadly vipers found in Australian kid's wardrobe

Thursday December 20, 2012 07:00:09 PM, IANS

London: A mother in Australia was stunned when she discovered a box containing seven deadly snakes in the wardrobe of her three-year-old son.

It all happened after the boy, Kyle Cumming, had found the snake eggs in his garden in Queensland's Townsville city and was given a takeaway container to put them in.

Several weeks later his mother Donna Sim was shocked when she opened the bedroom wardrobe to discover the box full of recently hatched eastern brown snakes "the world's second deadliest species", Daily Mail reported.

"I was pretty shocked, particularly because I don't like snakes," she said.

According to wildlife carers, Kyle was very fortunate as his mother discovered the eastern brown snake babies before he took them out to play or before the hatchlings had grown strong enough to push open the lid themselves.

"He is extremely lucky that his mother found them before he opened up the container and played with them," said an official with the Wildlife Care. "Otherwise he may not be with us today."

The family later took the snakes to a local sanctuary where they were released back into the wild.
