A rattlesnake was found under a couple’s bed in their Phoenix apartment. When a snake catcher opened the bedroom door, he saw agiant western diamondback rattlesnake, that was also pregnant, sitting under the bed.”
It was nearly 5 feet long, which is “very large for the state of Arizona” and it was in a “defensive” state of mind. The catcher grabbed the snake with his tongs and put it in a bucket. He said it took only 10 seconds.
The “terrified” couple stayed outside on the patio the whole time. Apparently, the rattlesnake got in their home through the patio door.
