    JONES COUNTY, Texas — A Jones County family experienced a nightmare come true when a rattlesnake slithered up inside their toilet last week.

    Big Country Snake Removal says the family contacted them after finding the adult snake in their toilet.

    When officials arrived on scene, the company investigated the property and found 24 rattlesnakes total in the family’s storm cellar and under the house. Five were babies and the rest were adults.

    The snake that crawled up the toilet was able to get inside through a relief pipe that Big Country Snake Removal later sealed.

    The family hadn’t seen a snake on their property for years and had no idea the rattlesnakes were living under their home and in their cellar, according to Big Country Snake Removal.

    Big Country Snake Removal says this is possible because, “rattlesnakes are secretive and can be very cryptic — they rely heavily on their camouflage. This is simply how they survive. Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.”

    Whoa! That crap is terrifying!
    Don't let BruceM see this thread. The python thread gave him nightmares for weeks.

    Jones county is out by Abilene. In the fall, Abilene put out a snake watch warning because of all the rattlers they were finding

    I killed two rattlers in my yard a few years ago ... encroaching civilization seems to have driven them out ... or into hiding ... :shocked:

    Never really considered that area North Texas, Jones County is about 150 miles west of Ft. Worth and just north of Abilene. Prime rattlesnake country, not far from Sweetwater where they have the rattlesnake roundup.
