There is a story gone viral that a 700 pound snake was found in a lake in Proctor, North Carolina. You know me, I’m skeptical.

To be honest, my first thought was — I’m glad it wasn’t Florida. As many of you know, my state has a problem with pythons and anacondas. Looking at the picture, my skeptical nature kicked in.

I can’t see the top of the snake and I wonder if the snake is nothing more than an average sized snake that has been positioned in such a way as to make it seem to be huge. I think that this picture goes into my bullshit file.
