Venomous Snake in Shoe Is a Reminder to Watch Your Step

A Queensland snake catcher took the opportunity to remind people to be careful putting on shoes after a client got a "bit of a surprise" when they found a venomous snake in their sneaker. Snake catcher https://www.instagram.com/mickbender/?hl=en Mick Bender , also known as Mullet Mick, reminded Queenslanders to always check "not only for snakes but also for spiders." According to the https://australian.museum/learn/animals/reptiles/red-bellied-black-snake/ Australian Museum , red bellies are "one of the most frequently encountered snakes on the east coast of Australia, and are responsible for a number of bites every year." Footage posted by Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers on February 16 shows Mullet Mick removing the snake and taking it back to the bush. (Footage by Stuart McKenzie/Storyful via Getty Images UGC)
