Construction workers in America received a fright when they found a ten-foot snake at the site.

The Burmese python was discovered by labourers in South Florida.

The snake had been there for the better part of the day but Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) officials took it away in the afternoon.

Authorities said it likely ended up at the site since PVC pipes were moved there.

The Burmese python is not native to Florida so now authorities are looking into the possibility that it could be someone's pet.

FWC officials said they're going to scan the snake to make sure that she's nobody's pet. If the snake doesn't belong to anyone, they said the snake will likely be euthanized but may be kept alive for educational purposes.
