A crawfish farmer noticed a tree branch wasn't a branch at all when it started to move.

It turned out to be a massive snake. 

Kalob Deaton shared the footage of his discovery on his Facebook page on June 14.

"It's a jungle out here!" he posted.

Deaton told Storyful that after getting closer to what he thought was a branch "the object started moving" and he "noticed it was a snake."

"I got my phone and started recording it going tree-to-tree," he added. Deaton said he gave the snake the nickname Darrel, and "Darrel is still out there wandering around," the landscape.

This story was reported from Los Angeles.
