A once in a life time opportunity happened yesterday nothing I can see will be able to top this in my book a 8ft Indigo. The fact that a animal this size is still around amazes me an brings hope. I'm still stunned by this magnificent animal. You might see it around because it has started to be shared like crazy because of the size of this beast of a snake! STUNNING! I know you don't like having humans in the pictures but its for the size of this unbelievable snake I will take that pic out if its a problem
