    I'm no expert but that looks like what we call a Black Snake. Always find them near water - usually 3'-4' in length. And fast....very fast.

    That's the legendary "King Midas Snake". It is very reclusive, and rarely seen by mankind...but if it ever reveals itself to you, you will be given the "Midas Touch", everything you do is vastly successful from then on and you will become fabulously rich beyond your wildest imagination within the year. But if you dare to ever harm one...
    Have wings, will travel.

    All good guesses so far but the only correct answer is" It was alive!"
