WKMG Anchor Lisa Bell walked outside to find a very large snake hanging from her neighbor’s roof overlooking her backyard.
Bell came out and saw the snake, which was around 6 feet long, dangling from her neighbor’s roof. In fear of losing the snake, Bell and her husband took turns keeping an eye on it while they called their neighbor and wildlife trappers.
Wildlife trapper Bob Cross soon confirmed Bell’s worst fears: the snake was a boa constrictor.
Worst fear? It would be much worse if it was a rattlesnake or a water moccasin which are all over Florida. A boa constrictor is not poisonous and at 6 feet, does not pose much harm to humans.
But, being the news person that she is, Bell posted the snake episode to her social media. She screamed and jumped despite the fact that the snake was nowhere close to her.
