Reptile Rescuer Finds Almost 100 Rattlesnakes Under Home
An animal rescuer was called to a home in California home where a couple of snakes were seen hiding under the house said there were many more than he had expected.
Al Wolf of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue said he responded to a home in North Bay, a neighborhood in the San Francisco area, where the home's resident spotted a snake going to hide out under the house.
Once he started to check out the scene, he found almost 100 rattlesnakes living under the home.
"It took about three hours, but I found a total of 92 rattlesnakes under that house, I was tickled pink, I wish that happened everyday to me," Wolf told WABC-TV.
Wolf shared photos of some of the snakes to the Sonoma County Reptile Rescue page on Facebook.
The rescuer said it's unusual to find so many rattlesnakes in one place, but the recent droughts are causing the snakes to do some strange things.
"The drought will cause them to go to areas where there's water, looking for lizards and rodents," he said.
