A woman was terrified to discover a snake and 17 babies slithering under her bed.
Trish Wilcher noticed what she thought was a "piece of fuzz" moving on the floor before noticing another one just seconds later.
Wilcher turned her home in the US state of Georgia upside down and was able to locate the mother snake and all of her offspring.
She suspects that the animal gave birth under her bed last weekend and explained that the reptiles were barely visible as they had blended into her carpet.
Wilcher posted on Facebook: "Ok we have turned the bedroom upside down…found 17 babies and the momma.
"Up the street they have cleared some land that has been grown up for some time now…therefore we were the home spot for her litter!
"I am struggling to move about the house much less sit down anywhere!!! I may need a cardiologist after this!!! (sic)"
