Rattlesnake catchers don’t like surprises, but that’s what happened to Marissa Maki She started poking around Cactus.
A venomous snake was seen in the Phoenix family’s yard, and the video shows that Maki found the snake in an unexpected way.
She stabbed a pair of tongs deep into the pink cactus, and a few seconds later two very excited snakes writhing from the grip and pulled out the tool.
They were Western diamondback rattlesnakes, each about 3 feet long. Maki was surprised, but she was holding her head, a video show.
“I thought I had only one, but somehow I got both snakes. It was great,” Maki told McClutch News. “I’ve never done that and I’m excited. I could say I planned it, but it was a pure accident.”
Her “double grab” video has been viewed more than 7,200 times since it was posted by Rattlesnake Solutions, an Arizona-based snake transfer service based in Maki’s employer.Some call it more “crazy” Considering that Maki was dodging two sets of fangs at once, rather than cool.
It happened on March 23 in the Gold Canyon region southeast of Phoenix. Homeowners reported that rattlesnakes saw rattlesnakes in the vestibule, fearing that reptiles would eventually encounter a recently acquired puppy.
Western diamond back Rattlesnakes live up to 20 years According to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, it averages 3-5 feet in Arizona, but some are known to reach 7 feet.
The two snakes Maki caught were happy to get caught in the roots of the cactus and were clearly frustrated when Maki interrupted the quality time (a lot of rattling).
They were put together in a bucket and eventually transferred to a large herd of rat nests in the desert. This is the standard procedure for Rattlesnake Solutions.
