Carla Rosso was on her way from her hot tub into her house when she spotted what she thought was her dog's rope toy, but it was actually a baby rattlesnake.
The Calabasas, California woman's traumatic experience was all caught on surveillance camera.
She told the local news that she knew something wasn't right when the rope toy "was gushy and it had a feeling to it, like a hot dog sort of." Then, when she let it go, she thought it was still on her so she rightfully freaked out.
Thankfully, Rosso can now laugh at what happened, along with the rest of us.
