A Northern Pacific rattlesnake, which can be found throughout the Sierra foothills.

Rattlesnakes can be found all over Arizona and it’s not exactly rare to find them swimming in someone’s pool, but now a new nightmare has emerged. According to Buzzfeed, the Buckeye Fire Department reported that an adult rattlesnake was found in a pool noodle as well as several young rattlesnakes.

The person who found the rattlesnake had brought the noodle to the pool, ready for use, when it reportedly slithered out.
