A couple in Long Island, NY were in for a surprise when they discovered a 3-foot-long python in their couch. And surprisingly, they lived through the shock to tell their nightmarish story.

The Suffolk County SPCA says Peter Wang and his wife were cleaning a basement apartment that had just recently been vacated when the wife removed one of the cushions from the couch and saw the snake.

Wang called the Town of Brookhaven Holtsville Ecology Center, which notified the SPCA.

The SPCA says the non-venomous Ball Python belonged to a former tenant and was going to be cared for by an upstairs tenant when it got loose. Ball Pythons are legal to own. No charges have been filed.

Reason #457 why snakes should probably be left outside of your home. Just saying.
