    My snakes have been shy this season. I have barely caught a glimpse of them. Then yesterday i noticed this skin as well as Sam. The skin is ~5' long and i think Sam had just shed. Sam7.24.18.jpg

    He was just shy because he wasn't looking his best. Now he is all shed and gorgeous ready for photos.

    So far this year i have only seen one of my crawl-space snakes, and i saw her several times each on 2 separate days.

    That looks seriously long. Do you know an approximate length of this one ? It almost looks like 2 different snakes.

    I’d hazard a guess of 12’-15’ but there’s nothing to give a good guess.

    I was referencing the king cobra in the second humorous picture I posted …Adult king cobras are 3.18 to 4 m (10.4 to 13.1 ft) long. The longest known individual measured 5.85 m (19.2 ft).
