A Sydney couple has discovered a rare venomous snake in a bag of Aldi supermarket lettuce. ‘Look, a little baby snake in the lettuce’, Amelie Neate can be heard saying while filming the unusual encounter. ‘It’s coming out, I’d better put the lid on again.’ The couple called wildlife rescue organisation Wires and the snake was identified as a Hoplocephalus bitorquatus. The baby reptile was sent back to Queensland and the couple later used the lettuce in salad wraps
