The bodies of two snakes were found inside the electrical box of an abandoned house in Morganton, North Carolina.

Snakes can slither around and over many obstacles, but one force that often proves insurmountable is electricity. The bodies of two reptiles that tried to go head to head with the power were found inside the electrical box of a house in Morganton, North Carolina. Workers for the city were in the property prior to its slated demolition, and when they popped the box open they came face to face with the aftermath. According to a Facebook post by the City of Morganton, one of the snakes passed over two hot terminals. The voltage ripped through the scaly creature and the snake that happened to be biting it at that exact moment. Morganton’s electrical services director says workers turn up ‘fried snakes’ once every couple-or-so years.
