What's up with these enormous snakes showing up in New Jersey? Last week, we reported that a 15-foot anaconda was spotted at a popular New Jersey vacation destination.  It was never found.  Now we may have something in our backyard.

 

 

According to NBC 40, 'Animal control officers received several reports of a 12-foot-long python in the Villas section of Lower Township. Residents claim the snake was first spotted over a week ago. It was spotted several times since then and has not yet been captured.'

 

Animal control officers believe the snake was likely released by its owner, and could likely remain in the area for several weeks.   So naturally, if you happen to see a 12-foot python attacking a seagull, you're urged to contact authorities immediately.   (Then again, it IS an annoying seagull)
