Don’t You Hate When a Killer Snake Ends Up in Your Christmas Tree?

Here’s a Christmas ornament no one wants.

A woman in Australia recently found a tiger snake in her Christmas tree, which means nothing that she finds under this year will come close to shocking her as much as what was in it.

#RNJNewsKicker: Woman finds #snake in her #Christmas tree "Oh Christmas Snake, oh Christmas Snake…" A snake in Australia got into the holiday spirit over the weekend by getting into a woman’s Christmas tree. A woman in Frankston, Victoria discovered the slithering reptile and immediately called professional snake catcher Barry Goldsmith, according to The Herald Sun. Mr Goldsmith, who runs Snake Catcher Victoria, said the unidentified woman kept her cool in spite of the seasonal scare. “This lady was pretty cool. I’ve had them screaming and crying.” She would have had good reason to be frightened: the uninvited guest was an Australian tiger snake, whose #venom is lethal to humans. Goldsmith released the snake into the wild after catching it. #northwestjerseysown #wrnj #christmastree #christmas #snake #oddities #odd #animal #tigersnake

The woman called in a pro to get the creature out of the tree, out of her home and out of her life, which is probably for the best, since the tiger snake’s bite can kill. Heck, the name of the reptile is tiger snake. As if “snake” alone in the title isn’t terrifying enough, they had to add “tiger” — another animal that can kill. Heck, why not just call it the “ticked off famished lion snake?”
