One Australian mother was in for the shock of a lifetime when she woke up to find a 6-foot python wrapped around her baby’s arm!

According to, the mom says she was awakened by her cat hissing at around 3:30 a.m. in the Australian town of Lismore.

They say the snake was wrapped three times around her two-year-old.

She clutched the snake near its head and it bit the baby’s hand three times according to Newser.

“The snake, not in any way, shape or form, had intended to eat the baby—it was trying to have a group hug,” said snake remover Tex Tillis.
