8 Times Townsville Snakes Have Given Us The Heebie Jeebies

Hiding in toilets, crawling into bed with their owners, curled up under your car seat- you never know where a snake will randomly appear in Townsville. 

But it's the risk we run living in the tropics. 

While we aren't Olympic quality sprinters, we sure move quick when a slippery visitor is around! 

Locals definitely haven't had a shortage of run-ins with snakes, here's 10 times they've given us the heebie jeebies...
