Maybe you've already seen this, but I got this emailed to me today.

After seeing this I would definitely want hazardous duty pay!
Just another day at work in the beautiful Florida Sun!!! A Florida Power & Light crew putting in lines for an addition to the Orlando International Airport found the following in a culvert they were using...

Can someone check that? I think I remember reading that recently and it was thought to be a hoax. Could be wrong though.

The Eastern Diamondbacks I didn't see though.

I'm not surprised they found one that big.
The area where Orl. International is is nothing more than a big swamp.
Prior to becoming OIA it was known as McCoy Air Force Base. Any travelers going to OIA, check your luggage tags. It'll have the letters MCO (McCoy) on it.
Airport construction has filled in many thousand acres to build terminals and runways.
About a year or so ago Lockheed Martin in south Orlando found a 14+ footer on their property. They called Gatorland (a local attraction) to come and get it. It's now living a comfortable life in a protected park.
