Snakes on a plane are nothing compared to one in your baby's bed!
That was exactly what a Gold Coast mum found, just one hour after getting her four-month-old daughter up from a nap.
"I don't know if that's why [my daughter] was unsettled, I don't want to think about it!" said Aleisha Mitchley.
She snapped photos of the deadly brown snake crawling across the cot, telling 9News it was terrifying to think what might have happened.
"I didn't know what to do, I'm trying to reach for my phone and stop my son from trying to go see the snake; it was very scary," she said.
"I didn't sleep all last night, every little noise every, every little shadow I'm thinking there's a snake somewhere".
