A California woman called a reptile rescue group to report snakes under her house. She was surprised to learn that there were more than 90 rattlesnakes living in the area.
Sonoma County Reptile Rescue shared photographs earlier this month showing tangled masses and rattlesnakes all sizes.
Last week, I received a call from a lady claiming she had snakes under the house. Alan Wolf, director, posted in a Facebook post. This is what I found, 59 babies and 22 adult snakes. It took me 45 minutes to get there.
Wolf stated that he had returned twice more and had retrieved seven additional snakes. However, Wolf suspected there would be more as the house foundation was made around rocks. Snakes are free to roam as they wish.
He didn't reveal the name of the woman or the exact location her home was located in Sonoma County.
Wolf claimed that the snakes were northern Pacific rattlesnakes. According to Seattles Burke Museums, they give birth to 421 young between August and October. According to the museum, many females gather in one den to give birth.
Small mammals, reptiles, birds, and amphibians are all killed by the snakes. Their venom is fatal to their prey. Most rattlesnakes only bite humans when they are threatened or acting in self-defense. Humans should seek medical attention immediately if they are bitten. This includes treatment with anti-venom.
