The one place where you thought you’d be safe from the nope ropes… isn’t safe anymore.

A fire department in the US issued a warning this week people to be careful with their water toys after a bloke said a snake popped out of a pool noodle he had grabbed from against a wall.

Worse, several baby snakes were later found still inside the damn noodle.

“[Two] pool noodles were left outside of the pool up against their cinderblock wall,” the City of Buckeye Fire Department posted to Facebook.

“The next time they went to use the pool, the pool noodles were picked up and brought to the swimming pool. Out popped a rattlesnake. The snake did not attack, but was concerned about the pool noodles as there were a couple of young rattlesnakes who were still inside the pool noodle.”

Fun fact: Rattlesnakes don’t lay eggs, they can give birth to as many as 24 baby rattlers at once.


Good luck sleeping tonight.
