Bad weather can bring all sorts of surprises, from flooding to power outages. But heavy rain in Australia can be especially dangerous — like 10 poisonous toads riding a python dangerous.
That is exactly what Paul Mock spotted outside his home in Western Australia on December 30. Fearing that the heavy rains that night might break the banks of his dam, Mock went outside, and according to The Guardian, saw thousands of cane toads fleeing their flooded burrows.
Most of the amphibians were huddled on the grass, except for a select few who had chosen a different perch: an 11-and-a-half-foot python, nicknamed “Monty” by locals, who was also making his way to higher ground.
Paul’s brother Andrew Mock wasted no time in posting a photo of the horrifying sight to Twitter.
