    Red-bellied black snake hitches ride on outside of ute .

    A NSW South Coast driver has received a slippery surprise, after a red-bellied black snake scaled his window while he was driving near Eden.
    Ted Ogier was running a delivery for his employer when the snake slithered out from the bonnet.
    From there, the venomous reptile wrapped itself around the driver's side mirror, as the car continued along the road.

    "It'd come out from under the engine bay under the bonnet, it was probably a bit warm there," Mr Ogier said.
    "It was sort of tapping on the window a couple of times, because it obviously wanted to get in."

    Just read about this snake.

    They are smelly.

    They eat frogs.

    Their bite is poisonous, but not deadly. Requires antivenom treatment.
    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    At least they have one redeeming quality.

    Gosh, Dingo, you have all kinds of creepy things in Australia. Some critters like, kangaroos, would be cool to see. But the spiders and snakes? No thank you. Me and my mom used to talk about could we imagine if we lived somewhere we could run into an elephant, tiger, lion or monkey!
