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.
Yep. Welcome to your new nightmare.
And here’s the thing that you may or may not know, that could now haunt you forever. According to Pennsylvania’s state website, there are three venomous snakes in Pennsylvania and two of them are rattlesnakes: the Northern Copperhead, Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake, and Timber rattlesnake.
However, it’s highly unlikely you’ll find one in your pool noodle in the Keystone State, and even more unlikely within the city limits, but it’s always best to take precautions. You can find Pennsylvania's guide to venomous snakes here.
Your obsessive checking of pool noodles may now begin.
