Australians are so calm about their snakes. At my house that whole bag of stuff would have been left sitting in the sun in the middle of the driveway until trash pick up day.
Wait for it...

It's not the snakes I'm worried about so much as the broccoli worms.

I'll notice the snake before I end up eating it. Not so with these buggers.

That he still ate the lettuce is the bigger story, lol.

FTA: "White said the juvenile snake was quite cute. He and Neate spent some time videoing it and conducting video calls between the snake and their children, who were away for school holidays, while awaiting expert assistance."

The snakes can use Zoom, y'all, and they're talkin' to your kids.

CSB, I had a garter snake infestation in my yard one year.  I couldn't mow the lawn without at least one decapitated snake head flying out the chute.

Mostly they provided jump scares when you see them moving out of the corner of your eye.

I was just glad they weren't rattlers, which were sometimes spotted in my neighborhood.

Who landed the plane in the lettuce in the first place?

I didn't know these were a thing before your post, and considering they're apparently harmless to eat I wish I still didn't know. Now I have to think about them.

Don't worry the snake was only in there killing all the venomous spiders.

I don't know that we've interacted here but I noticed your last name. Do you happen to have relatives in Hawaii? If so, we could be related.

I remember going to Aldi during lunch breaks when I was in college.
Only item I/we've bought was this:

I think, those were 39₰  (yeah, that is, or was, an actual currency sign)
Haven't been to Aldi since '88.

I thought I had a coral snake crawl out of a bag of carrots, but it turned out that it has escaped from a neighbors aquarium.

Being Australia, you would only be shocked to find out the snake was NOT venomous.

Thank you for finally justifying my childhood dislike of broccoli. I'll email my parents.

On the bright side, they're non-venomous, and provide some marginal protein. I'll call it fortifies brocolli.

Back in my high school days, working in the produce department was a pretty decent way to make a few extra bucks, except for the occasional and very terrifying discovery of NOPE.

And since country of origin varied, and being tropical we had no idea whether they were dangerous or not, we always assumed they'd kill everyone in the store if they got out.

Soak your broccoli in a little salt water for about 15min and the little buggers will float to the top.

They're very good at talking them into eating tasty, nutritious apples.

In Australia, lettuce tries to kill you too?

Its Aldi trying to kill their customers. They dont put their produce in fridges so that snake could have crawled into it. No way the snake could have survived if it was in the fridge.
