Watch: Big snake spotted on walking trail in downtown Austin

Snake caught slithering near Waller Creek

People strolling down the trails near Waller Creek Easter Sunday received an unpleasant surprise in their path!

KVUE Meteorologist Nathan Gogo captured video of a lengthy snake slithering toward the water underneath Cesar Chavez Street.

While it's unknown what species the reptile belongs too, one thing can be said for sure.

Unless you have experience recognizing different species, stay far away from snakes.

According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, over 15 potentially dangerous snakes live in the state of Texas.

As a result, outdoor enthusiasts should take extra precautions when they're out near animal burrows and natural waterways.
