June 6 (UPI) -- A 10-year-old Texas boy reeled in something surprising while out fishing with his family -- a catfish with a diamondback water snake attached.

Heather Burman of Hockley shared a video with ABC 13 of her son, Chipper, reeling in his catfish and discovering it had also been caught by the water snake.


Burman told KHOU this week that Chipper wasn't afraid of the snake because he has two pet ball pythons at home.

The boy ended up throwing the catfish -- and the snake -- back into the water.
