A Texas family was surprised to find a rattlesnake in the toilet

Nathan Hawkins, owner of Big Country Snake Removal, told CBS News that snakes are "actually very, very awesome creatures that are really misunderstand".

Upon arrival, the company removed a total of 19 adult snakes and 5 babies. Hawkins does not kill any of the snakes, according to CBS, and instead relocates them or donates them to local colleges to study.

"I found this big clump, and I knew it was a snake", Isac said. If that's not enough to scare you, Big Country Snake Removal gives a terrifying reason why the infestation was possible without anyone noticing.

About two dozen snakes were discovered in a Texas home after a young boy found an adult rattlesnake in his family's toilet. "Yes, in their toilet!"

When the snake remover arrived, he found 13 snakes in the cellar and 10 more underneath the home. They suggested their camouflage techniques and secretive nature were the reason they could get around the home without being seen.

"This is simply how they survive", the snake catcher said.

The family found 24 snakes on their property.

. "Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there", the Facebook post read.

Rattlesnakes are among four types of poisonous snakes found in North Texas, in addition to copperheads, cottonmouths and corals.

The first rattlesnake came in through the toilet.
