More Than 90 Snakes Found Under Northern California Home

This sounds like it could be straight out of a horror movie.

A woman in Northern California called the Sonoma County Reptile Rescue earlier this month after spotting a rattlesnake scurry under her house.
Turns out — it wasn’t just one. There were 92. Yes, 92.

Al Wolf, who works with the Rescue, says he crawled under the home in Santa Rosa and discovered one rattlesnake after another for 4 hours straight.
The rattlesnakes were getting ready to hibernate under a bunch of rocks.

He removed 22 adult rattlesnakes and 59 babies the first day; then returned another two times since and collected 11 more.

All of the snakes were Northern Pacific rattlesnakes, the only venomous snake found in Northern California.
