We killed a big one in Tucson a few year ago, if I remember correctly it was right at 5 foot. It was a big snake, for sure. A jogger had run the road a minute or two before we killed it, I wonder if she ever even saw it. It was in the ditch, she must have run pretty close to it. Snakes don't bother me all that much, but the sight of that one made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
