LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - That's a big snake.

A Pine Belt woman's video of her reaction to a very large reptile has gone viral.

The video was shot in Lamar County and shows what appears to be a large rattlesnake slithering across a road. The woman who shot the video said she thought it was a log lying across the road until it moved.

"I'd never seen anything like that. It started to move and so I stopped, put my car in park and I was like, 'Oh my goodness!'" said Grace Cornett. "It's the biggest snake that I've ever seen. I'm an outdoor girl, I've seen snakes. I'm not a huge fan of them. They kind of creep me out, but I've never seen anything like it."

It's a reminder to always be aware of your surroundings while outside and avoid snakes when they are spotted, though we're not sure how you could miss this big guy.
