There was no question that what Jackson Wright and his father had spotted in their backyard Sunday was a snake.

Wright had watched as it slithered along a wall, then up the side of a large barbecue grill on their patio. The snake — a python, to be exact — then slipped through a gap in the grill and disappeared under its oversize black lid.

The article goes on to state the following:

Fortunately, the pair knew just who to call for help: 81-year-old Faye Morgan, better known to Wright as “Ga” or “Grandma.” Technically, she was his brother’s wife’s grandmother, but the most important tie binding her to the family in that moment was that she had once wrangled a snake from that very same backyard, less than two years before.

On Monday, Morgan arrived at Wright’s home in Brisbane, Australia, wearing a pink shirt, gray sweatpants and tennis shoes. She walked over to the grill and lifted the cover.

Wright’s father stood guard on the left, clutching the clear lid to a plastic tub that would hold the snake as it emerged.

Wright began filming.

“Dad told me to get the camera,” Wright told The Washington Post. “It’s not often a grandma battles a snake over a barbecue.”
