That’s exactly what happened to a hotel housekeeper in North Carolina recently, who was spooked when she pulled back the sheets to discover a massive reptile.

The hotel then called the local police to deal with the unexpected guest.

In the meantime, the animal was corralled by police and placed in the Buncombe County Animal Shelter.
