Catcher Removes 'Chunky' Red-Bellied Black Snake Hiding Under Cooler

An Australian snake catcher safely removed a “chunky” red-bellied black snake that was hiding underneath a cooler at a home in North Arm, Queensland.

Footage posted to Facebook shows Stuart McKenzie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 removing the snake. In the caption, McKenzie said he had to act fast and catch the “chunky” snake before it got away.
