Snake in a Crib!

A family in New York discovered a California King Snake (non-venomous) inside their 7-month-old’s bed while she was sleeping. The child’s grandmother — understandably — was shocked.

“An urban legend, you don’t believe it could really happen,” Joyce Abatemarco said.

The 2-3-foot long constrictor that will grow to a size of more than 8 feet was discovered in the crib, wrapped around the leg of tiny Isabella Abatemarco, visiting her grandparents in Brentwood, a community on Long Island.
