A man was filmed playing with his pet snake while taking a dip in Tallebudgera Creek on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and it may be the most Australian video of all time. The clip was posted to Instagram by user Indiana Bones and shows the Aussie tossing his beloved serpent (a suspected carpet python) around in the water while sipping on a beer. “I was impressed.
