COUNTRY OF SONOMA, Calif. (KRON) – A Santa Rosa woman called Sonoma County Reptile Rescue on Oct. 2 to retrieve more than 90 snakes found in her home.
Sonoma County Reptile Rescue Director Al Wolf went to the woman’s home the next day to pick up the snakes.
Wolf entered the basement where he found the first snake, then the second snake, and a third. Eventually he encounters baby snakes.
The snakes are known as the North Pacific Rattler, which is considered one of the deadliest snakes in Northern California.
There was an active burrow under the woman’s house, according to Wolf. Snakes are having babies and have been there for a long time.
It took about four hours to capture 59 babies and 22 adult snakes.
Wolf made another two trips to the site and found another 11 snakes.
The Santa Rosa woman said she didn’t want to be recognized because she didn’t want the neighbors to panic.
