Video: A Red-bellied black snake slithers from bonnet
A South Australian driver got the fright of her life when a red-bellied black snake popped up from her bonnet during a highway drive yesterday.
Video posted to Mundoo Island Station’s Facebook page shows the snake’s head poking up between the moving vehicle’s windscreen wipers, before the snake emerges further and looks around.
The quick-thinking driver also shut her car’s vents and set the air-conditioning to recirculate in an attempt to block the snake from entering the inside of the car, she wrote on Facebook.
The snake was still inside the car about noon today, she added.
Video of the encounter has been viewed more than 47,000 times over the past 18 hours.
