Aw, HELL nah!! This is a giant NOPE from me. Nuh-uh. Not even a little.

This ginormous snake was found, apparently in the Dominican rainforest, and it can just stay the heck right there!

A video of the snake was posted by TikTik user fakrulazwa, and I don’t know that I could have gotten close enough to hold the camera.

Now, I’m not going to say this snake should appear in the Guinness Book of World Records or anything, but Good Lord!!

It is so giant that they have to lift it with a crane, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near this big guy.

*Note to self: Avoid Dominican rainforests at all costs!

Even when the crane lifts this monster all the way up, it still dangles down and almost touches the rainforest floor.

This slithering beast is bigger around than a human thigh — but I wouldn’t want to be the one they stick up there for comparison.

By all accounts, this snake is more than 10 feet long — that’s dang near 2 of me!

We don’t know what kind of snake it is — but really, does it matter?!? That isn’t just a nope rope — it’s a freaking log — and it’s one that I never want to see in person.

According to the New York Post, one type of snake that is indigenous to the Dominican rainforest is the Boa Constrictor — which can grow upwards of 13 feet long.

It is quite possible that this giant snake on a crane is indeed a boa constrictor, but again, I’m not getting close enough to make that positive identification.

A boa constrictor WILL bite when it feels threatened. But, while it can be painful, a boa bite is rarely dangerous to humans.

As its name implies, this snake will constrict its prey to death — aka it squeezes the bejesus out of it.

I have absolutely no doubt that a snake of this size and caliber would be capable of doing some damage to my 5 foot 3 frame.

I think I’ll just stay put in my little section of the world, and simply read about snakes like this in books!!
