Well, here’s something you don’t see every day.

While performing a CCTV inspection, a contractor for Wenatchee, Wash., spotted a nest of snakes in a municipal sewer pipe. According to The Wenatchee World, the slithering glob of reptiles was found during street upgrades along Wenatchee Avenue last month.

City Engineer Gary Owen told the newspaper the nest contained about 12 bull snakes, possibly pets someone flushed down a toilet, although identification is difficult based on the inspection video. The nest was about 150 feet from a manhole. The pipe was relined, so the snakes were sealed off and entombed in the pipe.

Take a look at the CCTV footage supplied by the contractor. The snakes appear around the 3:15 mark as the camera tilts to the left.
