More than 700 animals have been seized by workers at the Muncie Animal Shelter.
The animals were found living inside a business suite the size of a garage in a strip mall.
Officials said a man was living with the animals.
In all over 500 mice were removed, an 8 and 10 foot python, 7 lizards, several hedgehogs, an alligator and a parrot.
The animal shelter is now under an incredible strain trying to care for all of the uncommon animals.
They are now working with the director of the state humane society to help find rescues and individuals to find placement for the animals.
Muncie has a ban on these types of exotic animals.
