This isn’t exactly the “housewarming gift” that new homeowners want…
A Colorado mom was moving herself and her family into a newly purchased home when she couldn’t help but feel that something was off. Turns out, she was right, because the walls of her new home were crawling with sprawling, slithering snakes.
Amber Hall is the unfortunate woman who accidentally walked into this sequel of Snakes On A Plane. She told her local Denver News Station Denver7 that once she closed on her 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home, it was her dog that ended up sniffing out the snakes living in the walls.
Hall was unpacking her things in her garage when her dog wouldn’t leave one of the walls alone. She told the news station in an interview:
“I came over to see what he was looking at, thinking it was like a spider or something, and there were two little holes right here and I saw snakes slither up the wall.
So, I panicked.”
Panicking in a situation is justified. In this economy, buying a house is scary enough on its own (have you seen the interest rates lately?). Now imagine successfully closing on your first home and finding out that snakes are crawling all up in it.
The snakes in the walls and underneath the house were plentiful and rather large for being identified as Gartner snakes.
Hall added in her interview:
“Everybody’s saying they’re some form of garter snake.
But they’re also giving the caveat that nobody’s ever seen their garter snake that big.”
The new homeowner (who now probably wishes she would’ve kept renting) also conceded that she is now scared of being in her own home. Making the big move is supposed to be a dream come true, but it has turned into a living nightmare for Amber Hall.
The 42-year-old reveals that herself and her family can’t even go to the bathroom without being scared that a snake could come up from within the toilet. Hall elaborates:
“It’s like you crawl into bed, and if the sheet brushes your foot or something, you immediately rip the covers off or jump out of bed to make sure nothing’s in there.
I’m scared to death.”
After seeing more than 12 snakes within the first two week of living in her home, Hall hired a pest control service to “de-snake” her property (which cost more than $1,000). The snake wrangler admitted that the size of the snakes that they found in her home meant that they could have been living within the walls for more than two years.
The real estate company responsible for selling the home to Hall told Denver7 that if they had seen the snakes in or around the house, they would have notified her.
Hall thinks that the real estate agency knew good and well that there were snakes in the house and around the property, but decided to withhold the discovery.
Social media hilariously chimed in on the story in the comments:
