In Centennial, Colorado, buying one’s first home is undoubtedly stressful, but sometimes you get a lot more than you bargained for; how about a massive snake infestation in the walls and foundation of your newly purchased house?

According to Denver7News, Amber Hall had saved for years to finally purchase a home of her own, and in March her family and their two dogs moved into the four bedroom, two bath house. It wasn’t long before one of the dogs found a snake hiding in the corner of the garage, but that was just the start of the problem. It seems more snakes had been hiding in the walls.

a few weeks after moving into the home in April, one of Hall’s dogs crouched near her and began walking slowly to the corner of the garage. Hall thought a spider may have scared Winston, but as she followed him, she saw snakes slithering behind a hole in the wall.

The family hired a snake removal company who told the family there is likely a den somewhere under the house and the snakes probably had been living there for at least two years.

Thus far, nearly a dozen snakes have been found. Experts have been weighing in on the type of snakes, and many have called them a type of garter snake, however their huge size leaves numerous questions. The snakes are being removed humanely, and none have been killed, however Amber doesn’t feel comfortable and would prefer the concrete be dug up to find the location of the nest.

Who could even imagine going to bed at night and waking up staring at a snake? What do you think?
