1. The Snake House
Have you ever asked and wondered what it would be like to live in a den of snakes? Such Idaho residents as Ben and Amber Sessions would be able to answer this question for you. Not too many years ago, the Session family had the opportunity to purchase a cost-efficient home and took the deal without giving it any real consideration. It would become clear quite quickly about why the previous family had moved out. It turns out that the real estate agent had fooled them into believing a contrived story that the previous owners couldn’t keep up with mortgage payments, instead of the real truth about the snakes. It wouldn’t be long after they moved in, when Ben and Amber would begin to hear sounds of crawling creatures inside their walls. Soon after that, they discovered 8 garter snakes were living in the home because the foundation of the house had been built upon a hibernaculum, which is where the slithering creatures had been sleeping for the winter. In the end, the couple would flee the infested home and go bankrupt.
