A 2-year-old girl who was bitten by a rattlesnake when she crawled into her backyard playhouse Wednesday afternoon is recovering under the close observation of doctors, hospital officials said Thursday.

The toddler, Gillian Rivera, was moved Wednesday night from Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical Center to a Kaiser pediatric ward in Los Angeles, said Kevin Dunegan, a spokesman for Kaiser Permanente.

"Doctors have determined she doesn't need surgery," he said. "But they are watching her closely."

Officials said it is not known when she will be released from the hospital.
