And here comes another discovery—a snake curled up in an asthma inhaler! According to media reports, the teenager was bringing in washing at her home in Bli Bli, Queensland, when she spotted a red-bellied black snake slither out of the clothes’ basket and into her room.

Although the red-bellied black snake was only a hatchling, it could have still delivered a nasty bite if it had felt intimated or been provoked. Red-bellied snakes are said to be Australia’s tenth most lethal snake, and a single bite of the reptile can be fatal. They have venom deadly enough to kill humans, but are on the lower end of the spectrum, and deaths are rare.
