Birth. The beginning of a life. It's a truly beautiful thing. 

One thing that's not beautiful though (at least not for this writer), is a snake. We're just not fans. There's no attraction there. None whatsoever. 

So what happens when the two collide? A snake taking its first breath. Watch below to find out. 

Such a special moment caught by our head of Reptiles & Venom Billy Collett! One of our brand new, freshly hatched king brown snakes taking its very first breath!!!!

Awh, it's taking its first breath, how adorable.

But it's a snake and they grow up real fast. This snake in particular is called a 'King Brown' snake. Which are one of the longest and most venomous snakes in the world.
