Out of all the stuff that can go wrong in Florida, finding out that a snake has been hiding out in your attic is probably low on the list. Bob van der Herchen recently had the pleasure of discovering a 6-foot boa constrictor living in the attic of his home in Englewood, Florida, rent free. According to WFLA, van der Herchen's son and wife often complained about noise coming from the attic, but he payed no attention to it.

Just rats, nothing to see here. Well, the attic intruder was actually a massive snake. A snake trapper helped the family safely remove the boa from the attic, and in the process found it had shed some skin. The man estimates the snake had been living in the attic for years. According to van der Herchen, the snake's cozy resting spot was right above the chair his wife sat in. “It was actually bunking in the rafter space right above the Florida room chair where my wife sits,” he said. The man believes the snake was once a pet, a common problem in Florida, and entered his home by a tree branch that was hanging close to his house. "He hopes this story serves as a reminder to homeowners to trim overgrown trees," WFLA wrote. Yeah, that's the problem here. Overgrown trees. WATCH: Rogue deer tackles innocent man in a parking lot
