Snake on a Couch: Homeowner Found a 7-Foot Snake Behind his Sofa's CushionRemember the iconic movie entitled Snakes on a Plane? It gave me similar chills when I was reading about a 7-foot snake found on a man's couch.A Chula Vista, California homeowner called a snake removal company to get help with the removal of a giant 7-foot Vietnamese blue beauty rat snake. The snake had entered his house and was stuck behind the cushion of his couch. According to the reptile removal company, this type of snake is so rare that a person has more chances of finding a Rolex on the ground than seeing this reptile. At the time of removal, the snake's owner was still unknown. The snake was taken into the care of a person who handles exotic animals and was treated for a respiratory infection.Video credit: ABC 10 News​#Snake #Reptile #Animal #Wildlife #Couch​

Sloth Casually Walks Over an AnacondaWatch a sloth just nonchalantly (and slowly) walk past a giant anaconda, even touching it and passing over its head. Either the sloth knows he's in no danger, or he's just plain dumb. The snake could have easily grabbed the sloth and snuffed its life out, but for some reason, it didn't. The discussion at reddit gives us some clues.1. A sloth doesn't make a great meal. They don't have much meat, and it is "slimy, chewy and gamey."​2. Sloth fur is covered in algae, which is an ecosystem for insects, fungi, parasites, and other creatures. The smell can easily turn a predator off. 3. Sloths are not on an anacondas list of favorite foods, but they will eat one if they're hungry enough. However, these snakes eat such large meals, they don't get hungry until they've digested their last meal, which can take days. Sloths are slow and have poor eyesight, but considering that this one didn't even change direction after he touched the anaconda, we have to believe it's just dumb. And lucky.#sloth #anaconda #snake

This Christmas Tree Came with a Bonus SnakeHere is a good reason to get your cats to inspect your Christmas tree. Rob and Marcela Wild put a Christmas tree up in their home in the Western Cape area of South Africa. Not long after getting the tree decorated, they saw their cats staring at a particular spot in the tree branches. They were watching a snake! It was a venomousboomslang. While the boomslang is not an aggressive snake and rarely bites, its venom is so deadly that one bite can kill a person. The Wilds wasted no time in calling a professional. Gerrie Heyns came and used "snake tongs" to remove the boomslang from the Christmas tree, and from the house.
