A woman in Australia, revealed that she was shocked to see a snake curled up on her Christmas tree when she woke up in the morning.

Snake catcher Barry Goldsmith of Victoria, said that the woman identified as Cheryl from Frankston, got an early Christmas surprise on Sunday, when she found a new decoration had been added to her tree.

She didn’t panic, according to Goldsmith. Cheryl took a photo of the 3-foot long venomous snake and sent it to Goldsmith. After 20 minutes, Goldsmith captured the snake and secured it in his bag.

Cheryl said that she was very happy to see the snake go after she spotted it on her tree among her decorations. Goldsmith, who worked as a snake catcher for 35 years, has never found a snake on a Christmas tree.

The snake was let go in a wooded area not far from Cheryl’s home, but Goldsmith reassured her that she will not find another snake on her Christmas tree this year.
