The holidays are approaching, and Christmas is one of the most beautiful times of the year when families usually decorate their homes with Christmas lights and Christmas trees. Everyone hopes to find plenty of surprises under the tree on December 25.

However, a British family may regret putting up a Christmas tree this year. They were terribly scared when they were decorating their tree and noticed that something was observing them. Inside the pine tree they were draping with decorations and lights was a poisonous snake.

According to CNN, Rob Wild is a stock market trader who moved to South Africa with his wife a few years ago. The man stated that it was thanks to their cats that they realized there was something strange since the felines were quite restless.

The pine tree was being decorated by Wild, his wife, and their two children, ages 11 and seven, when they noticed that the cats were staring at the Christmas tree a lot and wouldn’t stop moving. “The cats were looking into the tree and my wife said, ‘there is probably a mouse somewhere,'” the young man explained.

It turns out it was a rather dangerous reptile hiding inside the Christmas tree, watching the family while they decorated their home for the holidays. The snake was identified as a tree snake (Dispholidus typus), a species whose bite is deadly, according to RT news.

“I didn’t know what it was at the time, but then I Googled what snakes are in our area and it immediately emerged as a boomslang. I thought ‘holy Moses, this is the king of all poisonous snakes,'” the 55-year-old said in an interview with CNN.

The trick to controlling the snake was under the Christmas tree

Rob Wild looked closely so he could see the snake clearly and quickly went to investigate if it was poisonous. Upon discovering how dangerous it was, he called a snake catcher. Immediately, the expert recommended to the family that they make noise with the gift wrapping to scare the snake while they were waiting for him.

The wrangler arrived two hours after the call and he quickly captured the poisonous snake. The trader said: “I wished there were a lot of things under the tree for Christmas day, but what I did not want was a poisonous snake over a meter long.”

The expert who came to the British family’s home was snake catcher Gerrie Heyns, who immediately captured the snake and identified it. He claimed that it was a female snake that was about 4.3 feet long (1.3 meters). Fortunately no one was injured.

“The snake stayed in the tree for two hours until I arrived. Once I had it under control, the family came straight to see the snake. He didn’t try to bite or get defensive because he wasn’t give any reason to do so. A scary moment turned into an exciting time for the children,” Heyns said.

“He tried to escape to the closest hiding place, which was the tree”

To catch the snake, the hunter used tongs to hold it by the neck then used a tube to control it: “Probably when he saw the first movement, he tried to escape to the closest hiding place, which was the tree,” said Heyns, who took the animal to his home.

He even claimed that in his long career in this business, he has only been bitten once. That was because the snake was only trying to defend itself: “They (snakes) are very reluctant to bite, but they have just been demonized so much,” the expert added in an interview with CNN.

“I told them, ‘I’m going to get my snake bag.’ I think they thought I was a little crazy, to be honest. When I told them there was a 10-foot python between the shelves, they didn’t know what to say,” Alati said. The reptile was captured by the woman and she later released it just outside the store.

“From the first moment, I knew that it was neither poisonous nor aggressive and that it was not going to be a problem for anyone. What’s more, I think everyone was a bit excited.
