Incredible footage has emerged of an enormous reptile that was found in a rainforest — and it took a digger to remove it.
Jaw-dropping footage shows a “world record” snake being lifted up by a digger.
The huge beast appears to have been found by workers clearing part of the Dominica rainforest.
In the footage, the astonished man filming can be heard saying: “My mother, what?”
The snake, which is at least 3m long, is alive as it’s lifted by the digger.
Since it was uploaded to social media last week, the video has been viewed millions of times.

Reddit users expressed their amazement at the size of the beast.
One said: “That looks like some world record s**t.”
Another posted: “For real. That thing’s actually jumbo.”
A third wrote: “Snakes on a crane.”
It is not clear what kind of snake appears in the video.
Dominica, a Caribbean paradise measuring just 29 miles long and 16 miles wide, has been dubbed “the Nature Island” thanks to its array of wildlife.One species of snake native to the island is the deadly boa constrictor which can grow up to 4m.
When attacking prey, boa constrictors first bite with their teeth before wrapping themselves around their victims and squeezing them to death.
