A Melbourne, Florida woman got the surprise of her life this week, when she let her dogs outside in the yard.

Leisa Remsberg spotted a 9-10 foot anaconda sun bathing in plain view.

A neighbor held the snake at bay with a shovel handle.

Animal control officers believe the snake is non-venomous.

A Florida tech professor identified the snake as a 'green anaconda', which can grow to some 20-feet in length.

The Florida wildlife commission is scanning the snake for a micro-chip to see if it's someone's escaped pet.
