A Chesapeake couple discovered something in a Great Bridge yard over the weekend -- a 7-foot-long boa constrictor!

A woman and her boyfriend were out walking their dogs when they spotted the snake.

The snake was picked up by Animal Services, who say it's thin but that they've fed it and they're keeping it under a heat lamp in a bedded cage for the time being.

There's no word on where the snake came from or whether anyone has reported a missing snake lately.
