Just in Australia… Snakes hanging on a christmas tree in Melbourne….
The snakes in the images Maxime shared are the eastern brown snake, tiger snake, and a red-bellied black snake.
The three snakes around one of the most venomous serpents on planet earth.
Zimmerman later revealed that the snakes were purposefully placed there by the owner for the Yuletide Snap.
They reportedly belonged to the Snake Man, a resident of Melbourne.
The snakes that are in the images reportedly had their venom removed, which made them not life-threatening.
Social media users didn’t believe what they saw in the pictures so they posted comments.
A user said the snakes were fake.
Another user said those snakes were placed by someone on the Christmas display.
A herpetologist who saw the post said, “This is staged people, this is not a representation of Australia.”
The herpetologist added, “These 3 snakes do not naturally cross paths let alone bundle together in the middle of a city where it is not their natural habitat.”
