Seeing so many young rattlesnakes is what “makes it so exceptional,” said Wolf, who has been called home with a report of the reptiles under the building.
The amount of snakes under the house is likely due to the fact that it is in such a rocky area, Wolf said.
Wolf said he takes the snakes and brings them to areas where they are welcome. “I go to specific areas where people ask for them and give them a new home.”
There were a total of 22 adult rattlesnakes and 59 babies under the house, Sonoma County Reptile Rescue said in a Facebook post on Oct. 2.
He compared catching snakes to stroking a dog. “Some you go up and pet. Some you can’t, ”explained Wolf.
