A couple got more than they bargained for when they found 150 snakes living under their new home.
Shaynon McFadden and Royce Robins discovered a large snake den underneath the back deck of the house they bought on Rushmore Street, Elizabeth, Colorado.
To their horror they then found the creatures springing up through gaps in decking at the rear of their house.
‘We started seeing garter snake heads popping up in between the wood slats on the ground level patio,’ Mrs McFaddon said.

As the weather warmed, more snakes appeared in the yard, under the deck, around the foundation and even inside the home.
‘My cats had it cornered in the bathroom,’ Mrs McFadden said. ‘We’re not sure how it got in, but we got rid of that one right away.’
