    Nearly 100 snakes found in Santa Rosa home

    Some people have ALL the luck... Anyway, I'm so glad they were safely removed by rescuers. (Also glad this wasn't intentional hoarding- wasn't sure from the headline.)

    SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — A Santa Rosa woman called Sonoma County Reptile Rescue on Oct. 2 to retrieve over 90 snakes found in her home.
    Director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue Al Wolf went to the woman’s home the following day to retrieve the snakes.
    Wolf went underneath the house where he found the first snake, then the second snake, and a third. He later encountered baby snakes.

    The snakes were identified as Northern Pacific Rattlers, which are considered one of the most deadly snakes in Northern California.
    There was an active den underneath the woman’s house, according to Wolf. The snakes were having babies and have been there for quite some time.
    It took almost four hours to retrieve 59 babies and 22 adult snakes.
    Wolf made another two trips to site and found another 11 snakes.
    The Santa Rosa woman said she doesn’t want to be identified because she doesn’t want neighbors to panic.

    Good on the woman for wanting to remain anon and being cool about things as well.

    That's one heck of a den to stumble on.

    Agree, she did the right thing, keeping a low profile. Quite a shock to find, I'm sure. Even for me that would have been too many rattlesnakes.

    Off all the stories where I think, "Man, I wish it were me that found X", this is not one of them

    Glad she handled it so well, that could have been a real mess.
