Got my ham & salad wrap, got my drink, got my snake...err...WHAT THE?

An Ipswich student got the surprise of her life, after discovering a Red Bellied Black Snake in her school bag. 
The reptile slithered over the girl's hand at Augusta State School yesterday afternoon, before she could grab her lunch. 
A quick thinking teacher trapped the snake inside the bag, and called out a Reptile Relocator to take it away.
