Next time you are in the Garden Center in one of those big chains, be careful. I've heard that this has happened all over the country so I'm sure that includes Canada too.

The store this happened in is one of my stores as a sales rep so it is no hoax. Also, the snakes were baby rattlesnakes. I was so scared being in there today that I told them if there is a snake in my product I was going to sue them because snakes and me don't get along at all! :D Anyway, they think the snakes came in on the garden truck.

My mom bought a plant from IKEA a couple years ago and it had a lizard in it (Gecko type).
