The last thing any parent wants to do is put their child in any form of danger. We lose sleep worrying about the ways that the world can negatively affect our kids. Sometimes, though, dangers present themselves and all you can do is hope for the best, really. This is the situation a mother from Victoria, Australia found herself in when taking an innocent photo of her two-year-old daughter Molly at the end of their driveway.You have to see this for yourself...SHARE this article with your Facebook friends. This is terrifying.
Meet the Dickinsons, a beautiful family from Australia that has made the news after a scary situation that were in recently.
As we all know, Australian wildlife can be pretty extreme and sometimes downright dangerous.
Bianca Dickinson's two-year-old daughter Molly had a close call with a deadly predator at the end of their driveway on their farm in western Victoria.
What makes this story even more terrifying is that this close call was captured on camera unknowingly by Bianca herself.
Let's take a look at the picture everyone is talking about...
Here is the photo in its entirety.
Notice anything odd?
Let's look a little closer...
If you look closely at her legs, there is a gigantic eastern brown snake right next to her.
Terrifying, I know.
This isn't any ole snake, though. Let's take a look at how dangerous they can really be...
The eastern brown snake is actually the second most venomous ground snake, and 1/14,000 of an ounce of its venom can kill a human.
It's probably better that Bianca didn't know it was there at first.
"I haven’t slept since it happened," said Bianca in an interview.
The situation affected her quite negatively, which is totally understandable.
"Every time I shut my eyes I see that big snake and what could have happened. I see Molly being taken away in an ambulance," she said. Bianca says that she did see the snake as it began to move away from her, but froze. "I froze and luckily she copied me."
Living on a farm in Victoria, Bianca and her older children know what kind of dangers there are out in the wild.
“Thankfully the kids generally know what to do but Molly is too little, she wouldn’t know what to do,” said Bianca. “And I don’t think I’ll be out taking any more photos until it’s cold," she added.
