A woman in Australia was shocked to find a deadly snake behind her kids’ toy kitchen in the bedroom.

Emma Chong was in another room when her 7-year-old son, Chase, came running to her and said there was something behind his toy kitchen. Chong went to their bedroom and found a snake lurking behind the toy. The incident took place at a home in Queensland on Wednesday, Perth Now reported.

She captured the incident and shared the video on TikTok.

"Kids seen (sic) a tail under their toy kitchen," Chong wrote in the opening of her TikTok post. She then slowly moves the toy kitchen before screaming, "Get out, it’s a snake. It’s a snake, get out." Chong and her kids then run out of the room. The clip then cuts to the reptile being released into the bushes. "Caught and released back into bushland. Bye snake," she wrote at the end of the video.

The video has since gone viral on the social media app, with users praising her for her quick thinking.

The reptile was recognized as the venomous yellow-faced whip snake, which is commonly found throughout most of Australia. Commonly mistaken for an eastern brown snake, the fast-moving reptile can grow up to 1 meter in length and are usually found in open forests, farmland and suburban gardens, Queensland Museum's official website stated.

Last year, Joshua Castle, a snake catcher from Brisbane, Australia, had spoken to International Business Times about why snakes end up in usual places such as bedrooms and kitchens.

"Smaller species often get brought inside the home by a cat, larger species end up inside by accident through cat/dog doors and/or flyscreen holes due to temperature. It may be too hot outside so they need to cool off inside on tiles. They also sneak in through doors and windows that are left open for longer than needed. Some species of snakes can slither up the pipework to your toilet/sink/shower, this often happens by accident too, they either were looking for water or they got into a disagreement with a cat and bolted into the sewage," he told IBT.
