A Perth woman is being treated in hospital tonight after being bitten by a snake on a popular metropolitan beach.

The 29-year-old was walking on Brighton Beach in Scarborough just after midday when a 1.5m-long brown-coloured snake latched on to her foot.

Cass, who was only identified by her first name, was taken to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital where she has been receiving anti-venom.

She was looking for keys in her handbag and didn’t see the snake until it was too late.

The young mother told Seven News she was in shock and a lot of pain.

A friend rushed her to hospital where doctors told her it was lucky she arrived for treatment so quickly.

She is expected to make a full recovery and has warned other beach users to be on the lookout for snakes as the weather heats up.
