A Texas man who recently crawled under his house to fix his cable found rather more than he had bargained for.
If you've ever had to call someone in to remove a snake from your home - spare a thought for this guy.

One Albany resident recently called in Big Country Snake Removal after discovering what he described as "a few" snakes underneath his house while trying to fix his cable TV.

"We arrived around lunchtime and as soon as I crawled under I could immediately see that there was far more than a 'few'," one of the firm's employees wrote on Facebook.

It turned out that there were a whopping 45 rattlesnakes in total hiding beneath the house.

Some footage from a news report covering the find can be viewed below.

Once heard a odd hissing noise under my bedroom window. Going outside to investigate, I found that a neighbor's kitten was advancing on a good-sized rattler! This was causing the snake to rattle in warning.  Shooed the cat away, for its own good, and called animal control to come fetch the snake. By the time they came, the snake had disappeared.

Had an exterminator come out to my house a few years back. He said he didn't find any vermin but he did find a six foot canebrake rattler. I asked him where it was; apparently it was coiled up just a couple feet under where I laid my head at night

For anyone who's got rattler's around.... Due to breeding and burmation cycles of snakes in the U.S. and rattler behavior, please DO NOT DROP YOUR GUARD UNTIL LATE SUMMER NEXT YEAR 2020 !!! To make sure no more are coming back or moving in. About a year and a half. I'd also buy a couple pounds of quality cayenne pepper-you can PACK IT INTO just about any poisonous bite & it'll draw out the poison and stop bleeding (even to the bone & arterial cuts-but will sting like hell) along with being easy for hospital personal to rinse out of the body.  Best of luck to anyone with rattler's or ot...
