A family heard weird noises in their attic for years – then they found the cause – Miami Herald
Anywhere else you hear a weird noise that sounds like an animal in your attic, it’s probably rats or mice. In Florida, it could be a boa constrictor.
That’s what Bob van der Herchen, of Englewood, Florida, found when he went to investigate in his attic – and found a 6-foot long boa constrictor that had likely been living there for two to four years.
Van der Herchen told WESH that his son and his wife kept complaining about hearing noises coming from the attic.
“I didn’t think much of it, I thought maybe it was rats,” van der Herchen told WESH.
But he went to investigate, and soon found the boa constrictor hiding among insulation.
