In early April, a 4-year-old boy spotted a three-foot black rat snake emerging from the facade of his family’s new Annapolis home.

Jody and Jeffrey Brooks initially were excited about their son’s discovery. They had encountered a snake’s shedded skin in the house months earlier and thought they were now able to dispose of their serpent problem.

But a week or so later, Jeffrey Brooks found a thick, seven-foot black rat snake. Then the family found another. And another. And, yes, another.

They called in a contractor and snake inspector, who gutted the basement and deemed the house snake-infested and unsuitable for children. They moved into Jody Brooks’s parents’ house — leaving their new home after four months.
