“This was a good teaching opportunity and example for my own kids who forget not to run ahead of me on trails!” Langley writes to members of the private Facebook group, South Carolina Hiking Club.“This was a good teaching opportunity and example for my own kids who forget not to run ahead of me on trails!” Langley writes to members of the private Facebook group, South Carolina Hiking Club.The beast, that she estimates is about four to five feet when stretched out, was “wholly unafraid of us.”“It watched me with stillness and reserve, and without aggression or fear. That told me that this creature knew with certainty that it was capable of defending itself if needed, but it need not exert that energy unnecessarily,” Langley said of the monster, who she captured on film before she quietly retreated. “That area is its home, not ours, and my children and I maintain that respect and reverence anytime we are out in nature.”‘What a beast’The online community was horrified when they saw the fearless snake, resting along a common hiking path.Believing her eyes tricked her, one netizen writes, “What is that?” and another says, “This photo is not selling South Carolina.”Others are in awe of the snake’s size. “What a beast!” one writes.“This looks like something you’d see in the Amazon jungle,” said a second while a third simply stated, “Dats a whopper.”One person jokingly commented, “He’s probably swallowed somebody’s child already,” adding, “I ain’t going on NO trails period.”Meanwhile, other cyberfans tried to identify the snake’s species, “That’s a huge cottonmouth,” shares one user. Cottonmouths are highly venomous vipers, which along with copperheads are frequently found in the area.

The kil ler snakes, also called water moccasins, are often confused with their nicer relatives, like the brown water snake.
