A South Carolina hiker hiking along a creek was shocked to encounter a giant snake sitting near the creek’s bank.
According to The State of Columbia, Meredith Langley snapped the reptile at Jeffries Creek Park in Florence and posted the photographs on Facebook.
“See how well he mixes in with his surroundings,” Langley wrote in her post. “This was a fantastic teaching opportunity and example for my kids, who frequently forget not to run ahead of me on walks!” she said.
The tweet received hundreds of replies and was shared by over 1,000 people on social media.
“He’s already swallowed someone,” one commenter said, adding, “I ain’t going on no trails.”
“Such a beast!” Someone else wrote this.
According to Sean Foley, curator of herpetology at the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden in Columbia, the reptile is a harmless watersnake, most likely a brown watersnake.
According to Foley of McClatchy News, water snakes strive to convince potential predators that they are deadly cottonmouths.
According to Foley, if they are cornered or at*acked, they will defend themselves by flattening their heads, striking, and shaking their tails in leaves. “All of this helps them appear dangerous to would-be predators hoping to be left alone.”
