Leanne Chapman and her husband went on a backpacking trip to England. On returning to their home in Brisbane, Queensland, they found something unusual in the balcony. They saw birds making some crazy sounds in the balcony. She told 7News, "My partner's gone out there was actually videoing them because they were going mad. As he's turned around and stepped back, he didn't realise he was leaning on the Christmas tree with the snake wrapped around it."

Aren't the pictures scary? While anyone else could have fainted on the sight of this long snake, the couple did not panic as much. They were shocked initially but they let the snake be! "It wasn't bothered by us. It just stayed there for a good few hours as we watched it through the window," Chapman said. Well, Aussies are too used to coming across such snakes it seems. They called it a really beautiful one. While this family may have let it be, this serves as a good warning to everyone who is keeping a Christmas tree to check for the creepy crawlies time and again.
