Fearless coworker picks up snake hiding in office desk



Sometimes at work, you might encounter a snake.

No, not a deceitful coworker. An actual reptile, like the one found in a cameraman’s edit suite at the offices of TV station 9 News Darwin in Australia.

A video of its removal was tweeted by the bureau’s news director Kate Limon on Monday. A woman attempts to take control of it, and place it in a shopping bag held by a man — although without much luck.

Poor hamster has a surprisingly terrible time trying to work on its fitness



Hamster running wheels typically only come with enough room for one hamster.
