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...My SIL "had" a snake patrolling his pond,, it central Virginia,,,
Anyone have any idea what it "was"??
