Fishing can be a relaxing escape, where you can forget the troubles of the real world — unless you're in Australia.

Andy Warton was fishing in the waters near Melville Island in Australia's Northern Territory last month when he caught a cod fish. Moments later, he noticed a venomous snake inside hiding inside the fish's mouth.

"This is a cod and it's got a snake in its mouth ... he's just eaten it! Ain't that incredible," one of the fishermen in the video yells.

Warton told The Mirror that the snake was a spotted black snake, one of the most venomous in the country.

And we'd only just recovered from the snake that slithered from the toilet in the women's restroom.

We won't be going near an ocean, lake, pond or swimming pool for the next few months. Thanks, Australia!
