A man was left with a bite after slipping his hand under a pillow and disturbing a sleeping snake, according to a snake catcher in Australia.

Matt Hagan of Queensland, said that he was called to a residence in Trinity Beach, on a report of a snake that bit a man who was getting ready to sleep in his bed.

The incident unfolded on Friday night.

“Jack from Trinity Beach was just getting comfortable beneath his sheets when he slipped his hand under his pillow and was bitten on the finger by the enormous spotted python sharing his bed.

“When I arrived, Jack's wife was deciding whether it was more practical to burn the house down or move to New Zealand, and Jack looked like a man destined to get very little sleep over the coming nights.

“A closer inspection of the scene revealed a solid spotted python that had quickly taken up residence in Jack's bedside drawer,” snake catcher Matt Hagan wrote on Facebook.

The couple’s daughter, Tayla-Jae Todd of the United Kingdom, said that her mother called to talk about the snake and she was very hysterical as if someone died.

“I thought someone had died, but in the end I died laughing,” Todd wrote on Facebook.

A baby is suffering from a rare disease that makes him have sexual urges.

1-year-old Arsh Akhtar, is going through early puberty including the growth of facial and body hairs, and voice changes as well as having sexual urges like an adult.

The baby’s parents Waseem Akhtar, 32, and mother Shabnam Parveen of India, were growing increasingly concerned about their son’s behavior so they took him to a doctor in New Delhi, where he was diagnosed with a rare disease called “precocious puberty.”

Dr. Vaishakhi Rustagi, who works at the Max Super Speciality Hospital, said that the “boy’s testosterone levels are exceptionally high, as high as a 25-year-old man, and because of it, he began to experience physical changes.

Since he is very young, the boy is not able to understand what is happening to him when he experiences sexual urges.

Precocious puberty is a very rare condition, especially at such a young age. According to Dr. Rustagi, only one in 100,000 have this condition.

Dr. Rustagi said that it can be very traumatic for children with the disease because they are unable to express their feelings or understand what is happening to them.

“If these children are not treated, they become violent,” doctors.

Doctors will treat the boy with injections to block the effects of the excessive hormones on his body.

He will need the injections until he is 10 to 12 years old, the doctor said.
