Family startled to find rattlesnakes hiding inside pool noodle
AOL.com•June 25, 2018
The City of Buckeye Fire Department wrote on its Facebook page that some residents had left two of the flotation devices propped up against a cinderblock wall near their pool. The next time they went to use the pool, they picked up the noodles and were startled when a rattlesnake popped out.
"The snake did not attack," the department wrote. "But [it] was concerned about the pool noodles as there were a couple of young rattlesnakes who were still inside the pool noodle."
The post continued on to say that if you do find yourself in a similar scenario, the best thing you can do is remain calm.
"One of the worst things you can do when coming across a rattlesnake is to start panicking. Snakes rely on vibrations in the ground to determine where you are. If you start moving fast and abruptly, you’ll only scare the snake more," the department warned.
"If you've seen the snake before you came across it, give it a lot of space. You can easily walk around it without frightening it. Just keep in mind that rattlesnakes can coil up and strike at great lengths, so give it as much space as possible."
What do we have here? Cottonmouth?
Head looks like a moccasin. If it’s a water snake, it’s doing a great impression.
We’re a 1/4 mile from the ocean, but there’s a “river”, wetlands and preserve between it & our home. Get all kinds of crazy wildlife.
Yea it would've gotten the shovel from me.
Daughter took the picture, walking to Publix, and showed be when she got home
Definitely looks like one.
Gonna have to check for boa constrictors now every time I open the hood of my car
Found this monster under some wood
Highly venomous I am sure
It was fierce !!!!
It bit me so I assume I am immune to venom
T’s and P’s ahead of time to your family, I get first dibs digging through your basement.
Burn the whole thing to the ground.
That backyard? Nope nope nope
Because obvious snake potential?
Just put your house on the market.
If that snake can get to that spot, he can get to anywhere.
Millions of snakes back there
What was it?
About a third of the snake was off the ground and coiled to strike while slithering towards the camera. It’s creepy as fuck, like when quadrupeds walk on their hind legs.
That's wild, bet it was going for the birds on that feeder.
Cotton Mouth. Do I win?
He seems happy.
Owsley seems to find genuine enjoyment in these demons that want to kill him, more power to you. Personally, would like to see its head chopped off.
Just a little smiley boye beggin for some scritches
Least favorite of all
Really pretty cricket frog.
I caught a DeKay’s the other night and moved him over my fence into the woods. The following night I almost stepped on a copperhead while taking my trash can to the street. No good deed goes unpunished.
Love the color
2 headed copperheads in my area, fantastic
Should’ve polarized this with my glasses, but still thought it turned out pretty well. This guy was actively hunting, and allowed me to follow behind him for a few minutes before it was time to go.
You are a fucking psycho.
Pretty snake, do you carry a hook?
I’d love to go snake hunting with Owsley
*** GAY JOKE SHIELD ***
Gonna need to borrow that gay joke shield for that one too.
Not on this project. I’ve got a Midwest hook and stumper that I carry on dedicated herp surveys, or when I’m herping for fun.
I didn’t get a picture of it because I didn’t want to stress it out, but we came upon another cottonmouth on this trip eating an amphiuma about 2/3rds it’s size. Super cool to see.
