A Texas resident woke up to a terrifying surprise- a poisonous rattlesnake found its way into his bathroom.

The family quickly called a snake catcher who discovered 23 additional deadly diamondback rattlesnakes, some hiding in the basement and some under the house.

“Rattlesnake are secretive and can be very cryptic,” the catcher’s company stated on Facebook. “They rely heavily on their camouflage. This is simply how they survive. Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.”

The company also recommended a regular check-up and emphasized the importance of snakes to the environment. “The fear that is associated with snakes is irrational,” stated Nathan Hawkins, who caught the snakes.

Rattlesnakes are the biggest snakes in North America and are some of the biggest poisonous snakes in the world. A diamondback’s length can reach from almost 5 to 8 feet.
