Juanita Tedesco, a Florida woman, was doing laundry when something crawled into her wash that scared her to the core.
She found a python that wrapped itself around her pet rat’s blanket that was about to be washed.
Tedesco immediately contacted the police once she caught sight of the huge predator that slithered into her life.
The python tried to eat the blanket, wrapping itself around it in the process. Tedesco said, “it was really gross.”
The police came to the scene and they believe that the python is most likely a pet that escaped from a nearby home. It most likely got hungry and picked up the scent from Tedesco’s rat, which lured the predator towards her home.
This is the third python that has been reported seen in Florida this week.
Police said an Orlando resident found a snake coiled on the floor inside of his kitchen pantry on Tuesday. And another man found a python that measured to roughly 8 feet long in his garage in Pembroke Pines, near Miami. This is the stuff of nightmares. A Florida woman said she received quite the scare when she found a python wrapped around her pet’s blanket while she was doing laundry. Juanita Tedesco told WOFL that she contacted police immediately after spotting the reptile. She believes the snake picked up on her rat’s scent on the blanket.
