Man Living With 154 Reptiles Arrested After Snake Bites Him

A North Carolina man's mobile home was so crowded with reptiles that it could have been called "Jurassic Trailer Park."

Authorities found 154 snakes and lizards, including venomous cobras, vipers and Gila monsters inside the home of Walter Kidd, according to The Raleigh News and Observer.

Kidd's home was part zoo and part decrepit museum exhibit. About 60 of the animals were alive while many of the dead creatures were frozen or rotting, according to an earlier News and Observer report.
The Henderson County Sheriff's Office raided Kidd's trailer after he was bitten by a venomous snake, according to TV station WSPA.

Kidd was arrested on Aug. 15 and slapped with dozens of charges of owning exotic and protected reptiles without a permit, according to the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.
