Last night I went out on the porch to smoke. It was after 9:30 so it was dark. I am talking on the phone and I look down and there is this huge huge snake on the porch. It was probably between 3-5 feet long. It looked black but I ran my butt in the house! I called my uncle upstairs and he tried to shoot it with a BB gun but he kept missing. Eventually it made it's way under the porch. I am a little freaked out cause my 2 year old daughter plays in the yard and I am afraid to let her outside now cause of the snake! It's the biggest snake I have ever seen in my life. It looked like a freakin' anaconda! lol.

I bet you somebody bought the snake and let it out. Something like that happened to me, except with a HUGE spider. I ran into my house and locked the door, dont ask why I locked the door. :D Anyway the snake wouldnt stay in one place like that for too long unless it made its nest there. If you cant find a nest then you shouldnt worry about the snake. You should probobly tell some of your neighbours too.

we live in a pretty quiet neighborhood. I really don't think it's someone's pet. We have woods behind our house and there has been snakes in the past. A couple weeks ago a guy was putting mulch in and saw a big snake. It was probably the same one.

Wow that sounds like one big snake . I dont thik it will stay around because they dont like people . Maybe someone lost their pet , but who knows . I know in May after the rain I saw a snake it was small though , but still wanted it out of my yard . I was worried for my dogs , but the next day it was gone .

Be cautious.. But your uncle should have taken a log n hit on its head. This is better than shooting.
