A Miami family had a surprise, and unwelcomed, Christmas visitor: a 13-foot Burmese python in their swimming pool, according to news reports from South Florida.
Suladie Miranda found the snake "curled up in the corner of the pool" and called 911, WSVN-TV reports.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's "venom response" team responded. (Note: Pythons are not venomous.) It took three tries to nab the slithering intruder, which slipped away and went for a swim before being captured.
