An escaped boa constrictor has one Florida neighborhood on edge. Jeff Skrzypek reports.

(WPTV) An upscale Boca Raton, Florida neighborhood is on alert after residents in the Golden Harbour area said a boa constrictor has invaded their neighborhood.

Residents estimate the snake to be at least five feet long.

It was first spotted in a bush, then on a backyard chair as someone nearly sat on the slithery creature.

"I think it's huge. I can't believe it's here. I've lived here 20 years. I've never seen a snake like that." said Becky Davis, who lives in the neighborhood.

Davis said the boa constrictor is popping up all over

"It's a big, scary snake. I wouldn't want to run across it," said Davis.

Residents are not only worried about themselves, but also their pets.
