& # 39; Just that one drop and it's enough to kill you & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday
& # 39; If you look at the toxicity of their poison, they are the second most poisonous land snake in the world. Up there, and they're not afraid to bite. & # 39;
Mr. Gilbert said that Lucy could easily be bitten, looking at the way she had held the baby snake too far in his back.

& # 39; That was a very, extremely dangerous situation, especially the way she held him & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; It has a full range of movement just behind its head for turning and biting.
& # 39; She thought it wasn't a dangerous snake, so she's pretty embarrassed now. & # 39;
After the domestic Taipan, the eastern brown is Australia's second most venomous snake.
Eastern Brown, however, kill more people, with an average of two deaths per year.
& # 39; It makes them Australia's most dangerous snake, especially considering how many there are, & # 39; Gilbert said.
