Brisbane family horrified after making deadly discovery in their daughter's bed

A family was left horrified after they discovered a red-bellied black snake hiding among soft toys in their daughter's bed.

The venomous reptile was found at a home at Jimboomba, in Brisbane's south-west, on Sunday morning.

The horrified family immediately called a snake catcher to remove the snake.

Bryan Lockett, from Snake Catchers Brisbane & Gold Coast, arrived at the property and worked quickly to get the snake off the bed.

A chilling video was shared to Facebook and captured the moment Mr Lockett gently guided the creature to the floor.

'Definitely not what you want on the bed,' Mr Lockett said.

He then helped the reptile slither into a white bag before the snake was taken away.

Hundreds of social media users expressed their fears following the horrifying discovery.

'Well I am not moving to Jimboomba in a hurry,' one wrote.

'My worst nightmare,' another wrote.

'OMG. Hope it wasn't there when the child was asleep,' a third added.

The snake is understood to have entered the room through a door which was left open.

Red-bellied black snakes are highly poisonous and can be deadly to humans, however very few deaths have been recorded.

The snakes are mostly found along the east coast of Australia.

Anyone who approaches a red-bellied snake are advised not to approach or attack the creature, as they can strike back when they are confronted.

When a snake is detected, people should stay back and allow plenty of room between themselves and the reptile.

Snakes are also adept at disguising themselves, therefore people should refrain from walking in high grassy areas to avoid accidently stepping on them.
