You might think Maine is python country.

A second big snake has been found in the New England state in less than a week.

Harley Burgess discovered a python about nine-feet long under the engine of his pickup.

He says he still shakes when he thinks about it and can't sleep, either.

The Wilton man doesn't know how the snake got into his truck.

Saturday, a Maine woman found a python in her washing machine.

Officials note it's illegal to have a reticulated python in the state without a permit.
