    I dreamt of a snake while I was asleep in bed. I was sleeping face up with my left arm out of the blankets and towards the edge of my bed. The snake crossed from my elbow towards the palm of my hand. When it reached the palm of my hand it stuck its tongue out. The color was brown,it was a big snake.
    I woke up very scared.

    I had a dream there were 20 deadly snakes in my bed. The tiny ones were red and black, green and another was bright red. The largest 2 were yellow, red and orange. And the other one was blue, black. I felt terrified inside but let trying to contain where they went to protect my daughter in another room. When I questioned myself where they came from they started to escape the bed. And when I realized someone had given them to me the frenzy of escape escalated and they would climb walls or go into my closet. Always together and always passive aggressive. When my daughter came in she was fearless and picked them up and put them on the bed. When we covered them we heard a snap and realized they had broken through the bed and wooden floor and started doing weird movements on the sand. I then panicked and realized I needed to call someone because New Zealand doesn’t have snakes and this many would cause chaos. When I called for help no-one knew what to do.  When I drive to the police station I stopped to see 2 snakes, one black and one white, fight eagles and seagulls. Only to die. When those birds started to chase me, a huge crocodile crossed our path. Flashed it’s teeth and the birds were gone. When I arrived for help everyone was calm and taking their time desire the urgency of the situation. I heard a knocking to my right and when I looked the snakes were outside the window all looking at me then as they hiss in unison. They crash threw the window and kill me.
