(Newser) – It was a snake … near a plane. A 10-foot-long snake was found in the grass near the commercial ramp at a Key West airport yesterday, NBC Miami reports. It has been turned over to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. (Impressive, but not in the giant-eyeball-on-a-beach class.)

Big Deal?

Flying out of Nellis AFB, near Los Vegas, we used to see what looked like pieces of rope on the runways. We'd call it in and the controllers would scramble a crew out to pick up all the rattlers that were sunning themselves on the pavement, and dump 'em out in the desert about 30 miles away.

It was more than likely a boa constrictor or python at 10 feet, yet they use a "rat-snake" in the picture...what a FAIL.
