Two eastern brown snakes, arguably the most venomous breed any human will come into contact with, were spotted outside a Melbourne factory.
In a photo posted to the Facebook page of Moorabool Shire councillor Jarrod Bingham, Mr Bingham, a snake catcher, asks who can spot the reptile .
Teasing he says "Better yet, who can tell me the breed?".
While just one appears in the photo, Mr Bingham said there is actually another, larger snake tucked away in the rock wall near the Melton factory.
It's believed they're mating.

"Removing the snakes unfortunately is a very difficult task when they are in these rock walls," he said.
"Apparently there is two hiding in there (mating pair) - it is mating season after all."
He said that no matter what, people should never approach a snake, not only for safety reasons but it's also illegal.
"They [snakes] are a protected species and without the proper training and licences it is also highly dangerous as like all wild animals they are unpredictable - I can't stress enough that no body should be copying the things that I do."
"If you see a snake whilst out outdoors, stay calm and just relax.
"If you are far enough away from the snake then feel free to slowly walk backwards.
"If you're too close to the snake because you didn't see him in time then stay very still, and remember no sudden movements and a snake will not feel threatened.
"Then call a snake catcher."
