A California woman got quite the surprise when she picked up a snake thinking it was a dog toy.

The whole incident was captured on her surveillance camera. According to CNN, Carla Rosso and her husband Ariel had just gotten out of their backyard jacuzzi.

Carla bent down to pick up what she thought was her dog, Duchess' rope toy. As it turned out, she actually picked up a baby rattlesnake. Carla dropped it immediately and ran out of the area.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department came out and destroyed the snake. They said that baby rattlers can be more dangerous than adults because they can't control their venom.
