OH! EM! GEE! A woman in Australia found a deadly 3-foot tiger snake hiding in her Christmas tree over the weekend.
The deadly beast was remarkably well camouflaged and could easily have been mistaken for tinsel.
The woman, who was identified only as Cheryl, called Barry Goldsmith (a.k.a. Snake Catcher Victoria) to her Melbourne home on Sunday morning. He successfully trapped the serpent and later released it back into the wild:
While tiger snakes have a fearsome reputation, Goldsmith told The Huffington Post that catching the unwanted intruder was just another day in the office:
“Snakes show up in many strange places, like bird cages, bookcases, in boots and in toilets,” he said, although this was the first time he’d removed one from a Christmas tree.”
