I saw a snake in the floods in Australia!

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Press Packer Mariah, aged 9, lives right at the centre of the Australian floods.

She used to live in the UK, but her family moved to Rockhampton in Queensland.

Since the flooding happened, she's seen iguanas and even snakes!

Leah spoke to her on the phone to find out how scared she was when it started, and how they're coping.
