An Eagleby construction worker has had a lucky escape, when an Eastern Brown snake slithered over his arm...while he was driving to work.
The man stopped on Mount Cotton Road, after feeling the reptile slide over his arm...and watched in horror as it disappeared behind his ute’s front seat.
It was only later on arriving at work, that he noticed the reptile underneath the dashboard.
With a bit of patience and very careful persistence, the unwanted passenger was removed by a snake catcher.
The Eastern Brown, which entered the car via an open window, was released in nearby bush-land.
