More Proof: Snakes Are Evil, Devious Creatures...

From a friend of friend in Mississippi:

I almost had a heart attack this week. My son got me a potted plant for my birthday and I kept it on my kitchen counter the whole time. This week I went to plant it outside, and I tried to get it out of the pot with no luck. I wet it really good and the plant came out; it was in a decorative glass container with no holes in it and had another pot cut and wedged into the glass pot. After I planted the flower I got a knife to get the plastic pot from the glass one and had to wedge a knife around the sides to get it out; when I did this something moved. I told Ron it looked like a snake, so I called my son out and he took the liner out. To our surprise, low and behold, not one snake but two baby copper heads were there. I almost died; I've been upset since then. When we took the plastic pot from the glass one there was a piece of card board up the side and we think that there must have been eggs in the holes of the card board at the growers and when it got hot they must have hatched out. I am sending you pictures. Take my advice don't bring plants inside. This could have been really, really bad. This plant was bought at the grocery store. I will not give the name of the store I don't want to ruin their business , but I will tell you if you ask, just don't want to put the name on the news. I'm sure it wasn't anything they knew about it's the grower that should be more careful in potting theses plants. I just want to warn you guys not to bring plants inside; who knows what could be lurking way down under those roots. I am only thankful it was not a plant to be kept inside.
