Florida man finds five-foot boa constrictor inside new couch

The crazier side of the internet has been on the "nefarious things are hiding inside furniture" for quite a while. Q adherents might be disappointed to learn that a Florida man did find something inside his new couch: a five-foot boa constrictor.

Clearwater Police shared that they were called to a condo to remove a red tail boa from a recently purchased couch. CPD wrote on Facebook that they "extracted it from its hiding place" and took it to a local pet store.

"The man just got the couch the other day and he thinks the snake was hiding in the couch when it came to his house," the cops wrote. " Officers also carried the couch back in the residence for the man. It’s a jungle out there sometimes."
