Family Find Snake Hiding In Christmas Tree

A frightened family may consider taking their Christmas tree down earlier this year after discovering a SNAPPY SNAKE striking and hissing at them from the branches.

Snake catcher Jack Hogan, 19, was called out to a home on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, after a family reported seeing a snake in their Christmas tree.

As the reptile-made teen calmly investigated the tree, a fierce snake can suddenly be seen violently striking Jack as he tried to grab it – which sent the family’s Christmas decorations flying in all directions.

He said that the 6ft 6in [2m] coastal carpet python darted the Christmas tree because it looked familiar to trees outside – but became aggressive after Jack attempted to remove it from its ‘safe spot’.
