The Second Deadliest Snake in Australia | Out There With Jack Randall

published on July 3, 2020

JACK RANDALL
(VOICEOVER): Oh, man!

I'm collecting venom
from Australia's

most dangerous snakes with snake
scientist Dr Bruno Simoes

Oh!

OK

JACK RANDALL (VOICEOVER):
And we've crossed paths

with a deadly eastern brown

This snake is the second most
venomous snake in the world

It's got incredibly toxic venom

I do not want to get
tagged, especially

in the middle of
nowhere like this

I can be in serious trouble

Does it make you
nervous, this snake?

It certainly makes
me super nervous

It makes me really nervous

I'm going to let go of
the hook to have a bit

more freedom with the snake

Bruno, don't get too close now

OK

Whoa!

You cannot, for a second,
let go of this snake

Bruno, do you need to get
the venom from this snake?

BRUNO SIMOES: Yeah

OK, if you give
me your pinner–

this one just wants to bite
everything that's near it

Stop

My hand's actually
hurting holding this

This is going to
be super dangerous

Ah, gee, it's quick

Bruno, take the tail

Well done, Bruno

We've got the eastern
brown in my hand

You can see they're
incredibly aggressive snakes

compared to the Death Adder

Can you get the beacon, please?

BRUNO SIMOES: Yeah

Just no sudden
movements, Bruno–

my fingers are so
close to its fangs

If it starts moving
wildly, it could easily tag

me on the finger and kill me

Look at that angry
looking snake

Don't– no– no,
vibrations are really bad

They feel every movement

And the way it just
tensed up then–

and now I've got
a really bad grip

And, Bruno, as
quickly as possible,

please, because
my hand is already

hurting holding this head

Just hold the whole
body straight, so it

doesn't, like, grip around me

Ah, yeah– beauty

Well, he's biting

It's a tiny amount of venom

Is that enough for you?

BRUNO SIMOES: That's enough

Well, I'm glad

I'm glad all this wasn't
in vain, doing this

OK, so you've got the tail?

BRUNO SIMOES: Yeah

He's really stubborn

Have you got– get the beaker

Yeah

Well, I'm going to
do a release now

Step back when I
release, because it

could go straight towards you

In fact, everybody get back

Hopefully, it goes that way
and not towards you guys

OK, 1, 2, 3–

ho!

Wow, what an intense moment–

woo!

Healthy respect to
the snake like that–

this is crazy stuff

That little drop, easy
enough, could kill me

And that is enough to
create anti-venom from?

Yes

There's plenty in here
for several doses

JACK RANDALL: That is
going to save some lives

Yeah

Wow
