So I get home around ten and goof off and play a video game, hang out on intl, normal stuff.
I'm washing dishes around 1am and my cat comes prancing into the kitchen, then yowls, prickles up, and starts to back away.

I'm standing there thinking "wtf is her problem?"

Then I look over and there's a freaking anaconda sticking it's head out of my dishwasher, all of 18 inches away from me.

He's non-venemous, I think, and I want to get rid of the damn thing. I'm not afraid to just reach down and grab him, but I don't want to be stupid about it.

He's mid-size, about five feet long and maybe three inches thick. He's white and black striped, alternating in rings (not lengthwise).

I've killed snakes before, but that's only been outside. Any of you guys know how to deal with one in your kitchen?

This is him in a comforter in the top of my closet. That's where we found him after I called the national guard. (A buddy came over to help get rid of him):

I'm glad you didn't kill it. People tend to panic and kill snakes for no reasons (which has resulted in a number of species having lower population number than normal in Florida). There's really no reason to kill any snakes here in Florida.

Yea, the first time I saw him full length was when we unfolded the comforter. I thought he was beautiful as well.

Right now he's camping out under a kayak behind the buildings.

Good job in not killing it. Im sure it eats all those insects and rodents that are normally a pain in the ass around the house.
Tackle 'em all. Let the referee sort it out later.

I suggest now figuring out how it got in in the first place to prevent him from doing so again!
"We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces." -Carl Sagan

There is a pretty substantial forest just outside my apartment window. I'm on the last wall of the last building in the run, so my porch and bedroom run off right into the trees. Not too far back is a river, such that I could throw a rock into it, if I didn't have to heave it through the thick mass of branches.

My porch is sealed pretty well, and so is the only other window in the place - the bedroom window.

At first I thought he was somebody's pet, because of the bright colors, and that maybe he had come up through the plumbing (especially since I found him in the dishwasher).

I think maybe not, though, now. He's a little too big to come through the dishwasher supply line (3/8 OD Copper tube, lol).

It's a safe bet that he was just sitting on the porch for a while, and came in on some night that I left the door open. I've had a snake on the porch before, I know they can get onto it through some drain holes near the floor. After nearly four years, this is only the second one I've seen though. If that's how he got in, then it was halfway my fault to begin with.

Furthermore, if he got in that way, then I'm not even worrying myself with it. There aren't very many venomous snakes in florida, and all but one of them (coral) is thickset and tawny brown in the manner of most Diamonbacks, Cottonmouths, Copperheads, and Timber snakes.
(Internet research ++, I didn't know jack about snakes until this guy showed up. Still don't, really)

Those guys probably couldn't get through the hole, except maybe the copperhead, and I would recognize them in an instant even if they did.

Who knows, maybe there will be another "snake in my dishwasher" thread, but I doubt it.
Good suggestion though.

Morris bridge and Fowler avenue.
The area north of Gail Drive and Riverfront is all woods.

You familiar with the area?
