lately on my 500 acres on the san jacinto river, i have seen HUGE snakes. like the ones seen on tv from florida. about 2 months ago, i saw a huge snake with his head up out of the water. about 2 weeks ago a man that walks due to a heart condition, walked out of the woods off a pipeline, and told me he was finished walking in there. he had seen a snake he said was at least 14 foot. he was quite shaken by the encounter. today sunday nov 14, I personally and with a friend as a witness saw a BOA at least 10 foot laying on a log in my bass pond. the snake i saw 2 months ago was way bigger than this 10 foot one. and if you think they are not here, look on your computer at suitable habitat areas for these snakes.--it includes all the southern half of the gulf coast states, all of florida, and the southern half of texas. east texas is considered ideal habitat.
