An extraordinary moment was captured on camera as a freshly hatched king brown snake took its first breath.
The video was recorded by Billy Collett, the head of Reptiles & Venom at The Australian Reptile Park, according to the park’s Facebook page.
The tiny creature may look cute, but it’s better to look and not touch.
The king brown snake will grow to over 8 feet long, according to 9news.com in Australia.
Not only is the king brown long, the snake carries seven times more venom than the average tiger snake, according to the park’s website.
According to Australia Geographic, the king brown, also known as the Mulga, is one of the top 10 deadliest snakes on the continent.
