Err, yes. Think I will keep holidaying over here. Shudder.
I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
My friend in Georgia came up with the best use for a rattlesnake I've ever seen . . . . . I came home to a package a while ago with this inside. He's ankle-deep in canebrakes at certain times of the year. Isn't this something? I'd like to bet there's not many of these in the country
A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care
I thought they got longer for some reason. Hell of a girth on it. I am fascinated by snakes and always interested in them.Probably because we don't really have any over here. Nice to see it with its head still on.
And I complain about Ticks and Midges .
Glad to see he didn't kill it. I was taught that as long as they are not near the house/barn they are filling a niche and serving a purpose. Once you get over the fear factor, they really are a beautiful creature in their own way.
Very nice snake,be a few years old being that big,,,mind you warm weather lots of rats /mice equals big snake,,,,rasputin we have adders and grass snakes,nowhere near as big as that one but just as nice,
Most canebreak or timber rattlers are around three feet long. This is a gargantuan one. I met a turkey hunter last year who had been bitten by one in the mountains of Tennessee, after the wildlife department had stocked the area with some from South Carolina. He was not too happy about it.
The Eastern Diamondback can get to eight feet or so. Six footers are not uncommon. That is more snake than you want biting you. Luckily, they are not as aggressive as the water moccasin and copperhead are.
