The snake grows up to one-metre in length, with its venom causing much swelling and pain to humans.

"A local was vacuuming his house today when he saw what he thought to be a young Brown Snake in the babies room!'' Max, a snake catcher, posted on Facebook.

"Keeping an eye on the snake he gave us a call and I rushed out. The culprit was actually a mildly venomous Yellow-faced Whipsnake."
