A professional pest control service company in Australia called Snake Catchers Adelaide shared a Facebook video on Tuesday (10/13/20) of a large brown snake slithering out of a shower drain at a busy beach.
It happened at Sellicks Beach in Adelaide, Australia, and was filmed by a lady named Nicole who was first to spot the snake. The highly venomous creature poked its head up through the holes of the drain to take a peek of what was happening above and then retreated back down into the hole.
Sellicks Beach this afternoon quite a large brown snake try to get out of the shower grid. (Another video to come) – thanks Nicole for the great footage!

“Sellicks Beach this afternoon quite a large brown snake try to get out of the shower grid. (Another video to come),” Snake Catchers Adelaide wrote on Facebook.
Eventually, once the snake felt the coast was clear and it was safe to exit the drain, it slowly began to slither up to the surface. Onlookers watched and Nicole filmed as it tightened its body, which appeared to be larger than the shower drain holes so that it could squeeze through the tight spot.
By the looks of it, maybe two or three feet of the snake came up from the drain. It quickly slithered across the concrete and made its way to the closest bush for shelter. Snake Catchers Adelaide posted a part two video of this showing the escape – take a look at it below!
