Carla Rosso of Calabasas had just gotten out of her jacuzzi and spotted a long, thin object - what she thought was her dog's toy tug rope.

Carla Portocarerro Rosso was calling it a night after a relaxing evening in her hot tub last Wednesday.

In the video, shot from her home's security camera, you can see Rosso react, flinging the snake out of her hands.

Instead, it was a baby rattlesnake.

"I picked it up and it felt squishy, " Carla said. She dropped it immediately. It makes no sense - who picks up a snake?'

Carla and her husband called the Los Angeles County Fire to help out. "I was cracking up", she said. "This could've been my wife in the hospital. Check it off my bucket list of things to do!" "It's amusing and scary at the same time".
