I found this in my backyard behind a compost pile.

The second photo is a few seconds before he striked at me, but luckily that black ziptie was in the way and he got a mouthful of plastic! It was larger then most garter snakes I've seen (I'd say a good two feet). This next image might help explain the size:

We found two of those in our second floor offices yesterday -- probably about half the size. No one has a clue how they got there.

It does look pretty big, I wish you had a chance to get something in the pic to scale the snake by. I haven't seen a garter snake since I was 13
