Waking Up To A Surprise

Yes, that is a boa constrictor.

Pretty, huh?

Now imagine waking up in your bed to find one of them staring up at you.

That's what happened to an 18-year-old in New York City Sunday morning. About 10 a.m., Kareem Lewis woke up to see the snake in his room. He started to panic when the snake began to slither towards him.

He called 911 and the police came to his rescue. They held the boa in a pillowcase until Animal Control was able to get there.

I know it's not a huge thing but could you imagine waking up to something like that??

I would literally DIE if it happened to me...I am deathly afraid of snakes! My son used to have a boa at his Dad's house. One day I went to pick him up and he chased me around the house with it around his neck (he was laughing the whole time). Scared the S#!% out of me!!! I left him over there instead of taking him home with me, I was soooooo mad.
