BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. — Six snakes were found in a bathroom wall at a Target in Beaver County, Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh posted Wednesday on Facebook.
The Dekay’s brown snakes were discovered over the weekend.
Humane Animal Rescue said the snakes are healthy and active, but because their brumation space was interrupted, they will be overwintering them until about mid-April. The snakes will be released in time for their mating season.
Dekay’s brown snakes are harmless and grow to about 19 inches, according to Humane Animal Rescue. They primarily eat slugs and earthworms.
