No, Florida. I was thinking cats too. There's a lot of strays around here.

We have lots of snakes in Co. Where I live we have many non poisonous snakes we share our acreage with. I'm happy to have them. Better snakes then mice.  A snake that size probably ate small squirrels and such. Most sankes do not want contact with humans so make lots of noise when out and about. They usually run.

 Oh wow....snakes are cool, but I don't want one like that crawling around my neighborhood.

Relax, folks, there are no 15 foot rattlesnakes.  This is a technique called "forced perspective" that is often used to make creepy-crawlies like snakes and spiders look larger than they really are.  The snake is way closer to the camera than the person.  Notice he is not holding the pole - it is being held by someone off camera. 

I even found a link that discusses it.
