Harmless water snake.

Looks real to me and wouldn't surprise me, sounds like they are an issue in the Everglades.

I think it is pythons that are in the Everglades, not anaconas!

If it is an anaconda, it should be in South America somewhere, not Aisa.

Nope, inches. The very next video shows the guy building the trap and that pipe is only about 3 inches dia.

Those are just sticks stuck in the mud not posts and the surrounding vegetation is grass.

Two videos are uploaded by two completely different users so no correlation I would imagine.

That snakes head is almost as big as the dang chicken but maybe it’s just a strange view point...

Yes I can since I can't see a chicken on my phone and as I said in another post there is another video showing a similar set up showing a much smaller scale.

You may be correct. It looked like the same set up to me and I can't see a chicken on my phone.

2 different setups. The first pipe looks to be 10" diameter to me. Big snake, probably 20' plus.

I think the pipe is 4", and it is a small chicken. Snake is long/big, but not as big as the camera makes it.

This! That chick still has peach fuzz. I thought it was a full grown chicken at first until the original was posted.

Still a big arse snake that would make me pass out, but not the 20' monster I thought originally.

not as big as it seems. nothing really good for size comparison but those sticks are just a bit more than twigs if you really pay attention. Looks ginormous at first glance.

I'm surprised those sticks held that piece of pipe in the mud, especially with the limb pulling up as well as the snake losing his stuff.


When I saw the intro, I thought that was a blue 55 gallon drum and I was about to leave this planet.
