Family finds 2m snake living in their roof

September 13, 2017

A family that heard rustling in the attic was surprised to find a 2 metre long boa constrictor that had likely been living there for two to four years.

Adam van der Herchen had been hearing noises coming from the attic and spotted a snake through an opening in the ceiling at his home in Englewood, Florida.

Animal Control arrived at the home twice but were unable to remove the snake both times. Officers told the family it was likely a diamondback rattlesnake.

Snake expert, Mark Lampert, then came to remove the snake. Lampart found snakeskin in the attic, indicating it had been there for up to four years.

After a two-hour search, Lampert located the snake and removed it, discovering it was not a rattlesnake but a Columbian red tail boa constrictor.
