An Australian mom says she woke up to a real-life nightmare: a python gripping her 2-year-old daughter’s arms and sinking its fangs into the girl’s hand.
Tess Guthrie, 22, said she was sleeping with daughter Zara in bed Saturday when she awoke to the sound of her cat hissing around 3:30 a.m.
Something was writhing in the bed, she said, so she reached for her cell phone to illuminate it.
“Automatically, I jumped,” she told the Brisbane Times. “I don’t know if my movement startled the snake, but that’s when it started to constrict around (Zara's) arm and then it just started to strike at her, and it got her three times.”
