Yes, that's yours truly with a 6-foot, 10-pound, red-tailed boa constrictor named Beta found in the rubble of Long Beach last week. Someone discovered it out in their yard curled up in a couch. The thing survived about two months on its own. Well, that and a category 4 hurricane, assuming it was someone's pet. Being that it is indigenous to the jungles of South America, I am assuming that it was in a house that was destroyed and survived. I've contemplated bringing it home, as it needs a home at the moment, but I live with a 5-pound chihuahua now and Beta would make quick work of her.
