What animal! Hiker Found Giant Snake Next to Creek in South Carolina

Recently, a hiker found a giant serpent in Jeffries Creek Park in Florence. If Indiana Jones had seen it, he would quickly have turned back. Meredith Langley reported the snake-shaped object’s discovery on her Facebook page, which she shared with the South Carolina Hiking Club.

Langley did not fail to mention that the snake was fully integrated into its natural habitat. In his post, Langley wrote, “This was a great educational opportunity and a good example to my own children who forget not to walk in front of me on the trails!” » Biologist Greg Lucas of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has described the brown water snake (genus Nerodia) as immortal. The thick, muscular bodies make the water snakes Luke describes appear larger than they really are.

According to him, the maximum size of water snakes is between 30 and 60 centimeters. Langley says he and his children come across copperhead snakes every week while walking around the neighborhood. He said water snakes and water moccasin vipers are common in the region. He estimates that the snake seen by Langley was at least six feet long in full size.
