Everyone has a certain animal that just freaks them out. For me it's spiders - yuck! - but plenty of people get goosebumps from snakes.

If you live in the warmer parts of our country, snakes are a pretty common nuisance in the spring and summer. But that doesn't make them any less creepy.

The worst part is they can curl up just about anywhere in your home, and pop out when you least expect it.

These 17 pictures will remind you to keep your doors and windows shut this summer.

Most of these pictures come from the fearless team at Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers. Follow them - if you dare - to see more snake rescues.

She guesses that the critter crawled under her hood the night before, when the car was parked in her parents' garage.
