This is the terrifying moment an extremely venomous snake was found hiding between flowers inside a Victorian home.
A two-metre eastern brown snake was pulled from a large display of flowers after being found in Plumpton, Victoria on February 4.
‘Don’t try this at home,’ the snake catcher can be heard saying in the clip.

The snake was found in the flower arrangement a week away from Valentine’s day.
The footage uploaded to social media shows the professional snake wrangler pulling apart the flowers before he makes the discovery.
‘He is a serious snake,’ the catcher said.
It is believed that the snake entered the home to escape the sizzling summer heat.
The snake tried to strike the snake catcher multiple times as he pulled it from the flowers.
‘That (the snake) probably takes the record this year,’ commented the man.
Eastern brown snakes are one of the deadliest snakes in Australia and are responsible for more deaths than any other species in a year.
They have the second most toxic venom in the world and commonly frequent central and eastern Australia.
