A rattlesnake recently rattled deputies at the sheriff’s Marina del Rey station, a sergeant said Monday.

The 3-foot-long reptile was found at 4 p.m. on July 31 at the sheriff’s station at 13851 Fiji Way, said Sgt. Amore Smith.

The snake was discovered in the parking lot in front of a curb marked”visitors,” Smith said.

“The animal control cut his head off,” he said.

The snake may have come from nearby wetlands, Smith said. He posted pictures on Twitter of the intact snake, the County of Los Angeles Animal Care and Control officer holding the snake’s head, and a deputy holding the beheaded snake.
