What would you do if you found a snake in your Christmas tree?

This is what nightmares are made of! Imagine having your Christmas tree ready for the holidays, only to discover a snake slithering around in it!

For one family in Cape Town, South Africa- this nightmare was a reality. It was the family’s cats who first spotted the snake. Initially the family thought maybe there was a mouse, but NO! When they discovered the creature slithering in the tree, they had to have it removed by a professional snake catcher.

It was a boomslang snake which is described as a “shy” creature who “very seldom bites”… but when it does, it’s LETHAL!
