More than 90 rattlesnakes were found under a California home, according to a reptile rescue group.
"I got a call from somebody that said they had snakes under their house, 3 hours and 45 minutes later This is what I came out with," Sonoma County Reptile Rescue shared on Facebook earlier this month.
"What would you do," the man who recovered the snakes asked.
The post has garnered a good deal of reaction. "Go very far away. Snakes are my least favorite thing," one person answered.
The post from Sonoma County Reptile Rescue, which included pictures of the snakes in clusters, said the final count of the creatures was 59 babies and 22 adults.
Plane crash kills 2, burns homes in California neighborhood
SANTEE, Calif. (AP) — A twin-engine plane that killed at least two people and left a swath of destruction in a San Diego suburb nose-dived into the ground after repeated warnings that it was flying dangerously low, according to a recording. The Cessna 340 smashed into a UPS van, killing the driver, and then hit houses just after noon Monday in Santee, a suburb of 50,000 people. The pilot also is believed to have died, and at least two people on the ground were hurt, including a woman who was helped out the window of a burning home by neighbors.An investigator from the National Transportation Safety Board was expected to be at the scene Tuesday morning, according to an agency tweet.
Al Wolf, who responded to the house, has returned to check the residence twice, and found 11 more snakes, bringing the total to 92.
"We know they'll probably be more. I'll go back one more time this month," Wolf, the director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue, told NBC News on Friday.

"It's colder, and it's time for snakes to hibernate in October, so we know they'll be more in-and-out, but I will go back in April and do another check under the house and around her property," he said.
Wolf described the majority of the snakes as "fairly mellow in nature,"in Santa Rosa reported.
“Some you go up and pet. Some you can’t,” he told the newspaper.
The number of snakes living in the foundation was likely because it is such a rocky area, according to Wolf. Much of the rock was not removed when the home’s foundation lines were dug.
The homeowner asked to remain anonymous in case the discovery upsets her neighbors, according to the newspaper.
Rattlesnakes, which are venomous, can live in a wide range of environments and can grow to more than 5 feet long.
