Many years ago, the woods on the margins of the river next to my house were all bare
Lots of snakes would enter the homes of people living near the river, mostly during days that were too hot
The snakes would look for the shaded, colder spots. They would particularly enjoy the floor tiles and hide under appliances and furniture.
This one time, I came home from school, was around 12 or so I think. I was entering my bedroom after a shower and I saw something under the bed, I thought it was a sock. It was really a coral snake all rolled up. The moment I sat on the bed, it slithered from under it and it went hiding under the book shelf.
