Snakes aren't usual wanted as Christmas tree decorations. A family from North Carolina unfortunately got a little something extra when they pulled their artificial tree out of storage.

A 6 year old was the first to spot the foot long corn snake. Her fathers first reaction - "I thought Rachel was teasing me".

The brave father was the one to elected to  remove the tree intruder with his wife recording the process.  The family named it 'Tinsel' and released their new friend back into the woods.
