It's been a bad week for Orlando snake enthusiasts. Amidst a citywide snake hunt for an 8 foot king cobra, another huge serpent tried to escape its owner– this time in the middle of traffic on Colonial Drive. 

Sunday evening at 6:13 p.m., William Moxey caught this video of what appears to be a python, while at the corner of Colonial and Woodbury.

Moxey was able to flag the driver down and a passenger jumped out of the truck and grabbed the snake before it was too late.
