Snake Invasion: How woman lived with 90 snakes in her home
About 90 rattlesnakes have been removed from a woman’s home in California.
The woman, according to Naija News, who chose to remain anonymous, had called reptile rescue team quietly so as not to raise an alarm to her neighbours.
The Sonoma County Reptiles Rescue Team alleged that when they visited the woman’s home they came out with 59 babies and 22 adult rattlesnakes. The rescue team also said they returned twice and removed 7 more snakes.
The rescue team director, Alan Wolf posted the incident on his Facebook page, said “3 hours and 45 minutes later this is what I came out with, 59 babies and 22 adults.”
He also revealed that the woman’s house was built around rocks which translates to the fact that snakes can come and go. He went ahead to state that more reptiles will definitely be visiting the woman’s home.
“The foundation of the home was built around rocks and snakes can come and go as they please.”
The director also added that the snakes were pacific rattlesnakes, which, according to the Burke Museum in Seattle, gave birth to 4 to 21 snakes from August to October. It is also not unusual for female pacific rattlesnakes to gather in one den to reproduce.
Rattlesnakes often do not attack humans unless they feel threatened.
