An Australian toddler had a lucky escape after eggs he stashed in his wardrobe hatched deadly snakes.

Kyle Cummings, three, found the eggs near his home in Townsville, Queensland, several days ago and put them in a plastic container before tucking them away.

On Monday his mother found seven newly hatched eastern brown snakes in the container.
