Huge snake leaves its mark, scaring gardeners

SHERIDAN Ryan got a shock at work today after his son, Alex, picked up an eight-foot long snake skin at a Woolgoolga property he was mowing.

He said it was biggest he had seen in a "long, long while” and matched the giants he had seen across the border in Queensland.

Sheridan said there was no other trace of the snake beside from its shed skin.

"No I didn't (see it) thank god. I don't want to,” he said.

Sheridan said he kept the snake skin to scare his son.

"I put it outside my son's place, I want to scare the crap out of him,” he said.

Sheridan said the skin measured about eight-foot when stretched out and about six-inches thick.

He said he had no idea what type of snake it was.

"I couldn't see any real pattern,” he said.
