North Texas Family Finds Adult Rattlesnake in Toilet, 23 More in Home

Big Country Snake Removal Facebook

It’s one of my worst nightmares. Not only did this North Texas family have 24 rattlesnakes in their home without even knowing, but the first one they discovered was a full grown rattler in their toilet!

Queue the ‘Snakes on a Plane’ movie because I’ve had it with these snakes in my toilet!

Big Country Snake Removal turned this scary scenario into a teaching moment on Facebook Monday. When they came out on a call about an adult snake in a family’s toilet in Jones County, they did a bit more searching to ultimately find a total of 24 rattlesnakes in the home.

According to the snake removal team, this was the first snake sighting on that property in several years, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any snakes. This is why a routine snake inspection is recommended for snake safety.

Snakes are more active during warm weather as they hunt and prepare to take shelter when temperatures gets cooler. So while Texas Hill Country says snake season is autumn (still warm but about to get cold in winter), Texas is an anomaly for weather. One day it’s warm and sunny and the next it’s 30 degrees. So with that in mind, always keep an eye out for snakes!

Texas Parks and Wildlife biologist Annaliese Scoggin told KTXS that the best way to avoid snakes (and rodents because that’s what snakes like to eat) is to “remove what they like – trash, brush piles and abandoned cars.”
