'Swamp Wars': Huge Burmese Python Found in Family's Swimming Pool On Christmas Day (VIDEO)

On "Swamp Wars" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on Animal Planet) one family found a very nasty Christmas Day visitor lurking in their pool: a 13-feet-long Burmese python.

Lisa, a member of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's Venom One team, responded to their call but extricating the massive snake proved just too hard for one person.

The massive snake was too heavy for Lisa to safely pull it out of the water on her own, and after it "landed a bite a couple of inches from my hands," she called for back-up. Venom One eventually captured and removed the animal safely.

New episodes of "Swamp Wars" air Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
