A father and daughter have been captured in a uniquely Australian moment as they bickered while removing ticks from the father’s pet snake.
The Tasmanian father, a certified snake handler, and his daughter were filmed while squabbling as she became afraid of the extremely venomous tiger snake he had pinned to a table.
Video of the interaction was posted to the TikTok channel, ebbs1987, on Sunday, captioned ‘he loves them [snakes] more than his own children’.

The video shows the Akubra-wearing daughter nervously searching for ticks in between the snake’s scales.
‘That’s quite a big one there,’ she says.
‘You ain’t seen nothing yet,’ the father replies, while pinning the animal down.
The woman then appears to pull off one of the snake’s scales instead of a tick, the beast opening its mouth and sharply turning towards the woman.
‘Oh f*** dad,’ the woman yells in shock.
The father, shirtless and unfazed by the experience, mutters ‘I’d be crabby with you too’.
The two then become frustrated with each other, taking the time to exchange insults while handling the potentially deadly animal.
‘Just look what you’re doing, will you,’ the father chides.
‘A snake nearly f****** bit me,’ the woman replies.
The daughter was frightened after her dad’s pet tiger snake turned to strike her after she accidentally hurt it while pulling out a ‘big’ tick
‘It did not,’ the father bickers back.
After some more squabbling, the snake then twitches again as the woman makes another attempt to dislodge the tick, freaking her out once more.
‘Oh my gosh mum you’re such a baby,’ the woman’s son says from behind the camera.
The two then reconvene and return to treating the snake.
TikTok users quickly took to the post, commenting on how Australian the situation was.
‘This is typical Aussie drama, absolutely love it,’ one commenter wrote.
Tiger snakes (pictured) have an extremely potent venom that inhibits the central nervous system, but also causes muscle damage and affects blood clotting
‘This is the most Kath and Kim thing ever,’ a second commenter wrote.
‘This was like me and my dad when he fed his carpet snake without tongs and needed him removed from his arm,’ another user commented on the video.
The tiger snake has an extremely potent venom that inhibits the central nervous system, but also causes muscle damage and affects blood clotting.
They have been attributed to 17 per cent of identified snakebite victims in Australia between 2005 and 2015, with four deaths recorded from 119 confirmed envenomations.
