The state of Indiana has it's fair share of monster sightings and stories. Alien big cats, lake and swamp monsters, phantom kangaroos, "devil monkeys," bigfoot, lizard men, giant birds, and a possible dragon. The one phenomenon that intrigues me is the number of sightings and encounters (natural & supernatural) with giant snakes or snake-like creatures. There have been a few aquatic reports...but I'm concentrating on those incidents of land-dwelling snakes. There are other places in the USA that have large snake reports...but Indiana, for whatever reason, has a more varied mix of slithering serpents. Is it, for the most part, just bluster? Possibly...but most legends usually start based on fact. Tell me what you think.
