A North Carolina family got a slithering surprise in their oven while trying to cook a frozen pizza for dinner.
Amber Helm and her husband Robert Helm were cooking a frozen pizza Monday night when they started smelling smoke.
“I opened up the oven and thought, ‘Is that part of the oven?’ I looked more closely and it was a snake,” Amber told The News & Observer.
The family does not know how the snake got there or how long it had been there. The father was responsible for cleaning up the 18 inch-long snake.
“I put the oven on self-clean after I pulled that crispy critter out,” he said to the outlet.
