Most people have a long list of things they’re looking for when they begin house-hunting. Some people want a set number of bedrooms, for example, others prefer a sizable backyard or a big garage.
Yet though taste and preference differ from potential buyer to potential buyer, I think we can all agree there are certain things none of us want from/in a new home.
When Amber Hall walked into a four bedroom, two bathroom house for sale in Centennial, Colorado, she thought she’d found her ideal first property after weeks of searching around. As per reports, she envisaged her two children and two dogs playing in the backyard, and was especially happy with the location.
Of course, she wasn’t to know that the house already had residents… of a rather slithery kind.
After officially buying the house, Amber was excited for her family to move in and make it their own. Yet alarm bells sounded off in her head while she was in the process of unpacking and one of her dogs began to behave strangely.
As per KOAA, she explained: “I was trying to unpack, and my dog crouched down and he started walking over here really slow.”
“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.”
Yes, you read that correctly. Snakes in the walls.
Reportedly, the large serpents had coiled up inside the wall beside the door that led from her garage to the yard. Alarmingly, when Hall placed her hand further up the wall, she could feel warmth, indicating that there were more of the creatures hidden away.
“Shockingly big,” she said of the snakes.
“After all the research, 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.
“I can’t unpack any of my stuff because I’m definitely afraid that there’s snakes in the boxes or under the boxes… 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.”
Amber said the first snake was discovered a little over a week ago. Since then, 10 snakes have been found in total.
The panic-stricken mom hired the services of a snake wrangler, who has been removing the snakes from the home in a human fashion. He told Amber that based on the size of the snakes, some of them may have been living in the house for the past two years.
“I don’t feel like I’m the first one to find them, but I don’t think that anybody would ever say that they knew they were there,” said Hall.
“It’s rough. I’m 42 years old, and this is my first home. I’ve worked my whole life for it, and I can’t enjoy it. My kids can enjoy it. I’m scared to death.”
So far it’s cost Amber around $1,000 to remove her unwanted house guests. She said she likely won’t feel comfortable until the concrete in the home is ripped up to find where they’re living.
This is my literal nightmare! I can only imagine how uncomfortable Amber and her children are living in a house infested with snakes.
