A mother’s intuition prevented her two-year-old son from getting into the path of a deadly snake as he was playing with his dog in a TikTok video.
The footage, which has since been viewed almost 20 million times, shows the boy and his dog playing in the front yard of a home in North West Queensland.

As the family neared the gate, Raquel Crisp, the boy’s mother, carried her infant daughter.
As she goes to open the gate, the mother stops suddenly and reaches around to push her son behind her.
As the boy runs away, the woman slowly backs away from the driveway.
The video, which was posted by Christopher Crisp, shows the mother looking intently at the gate.
In the post, Christopher Crisp revealed that the family was forced to leave their home after his wife saw something that spooked them.
He said that the snake sat there for about a minute as the kids played with their dogs. The viral video has left many people questioning their eyesight.
