Yikes !!!

Guess what was found just south of Jacksonville, FLA ...

Would make one hell of a pair of boots! OR Three! Snake110

THIS IS NOT A PYTHON!
This is a 15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake - the largest ever caught on record, in fact. This snake was found Near the St. Augustine outlet, in a new KB homes subdivision just south of Jacksonville FL.

A little research revealed the following:
One bite from a snake of this size would contain enough venom to kill over 40 full grown men.
The head of this snake alone is larger than the hand of a normal sized man.
A bite from those fangs would comparable to being stabbed by two curved, 1/4 inch diameter screwdrivers.

The knife being used to draw out the fangs for the bottom picture has a blade around 4 inches long.

This snake is estimated to have weighed over 170 pounds. (How much do you weigh?)

Notice the girth of this snake as compared to the cop's leg in the first picture (and he is not a small man).
A snake of this size could easily swallow a 2 year-old child (and dogs, pigs, etc).
A snake this size has a 5 1/2' accurate striking distance. (The distance for an average size rattlesnake is about 2 feet.)
This snake has probably been alive since George Bush Sr. was President.
Now just ask yourself these questions: What has this snake been feeding on and where are its offspring?

Dennis... I am surprised you are so comfortable posting this... this from a man that is terrified of mosquitoes. How many mosquitoes would it take to kill this snake?

I prefer a snake this size instead of the little sneaky ones that can be behind a bush or under a rock.

The 5'-6' are common in Arkansas. But the little copper head is probably more common at less than 3'. Both can kill.

Gee, thanks, Dennis -- that subdivision is about 40 miles from here, and I ride by it at least once a month...

That is one huge Diamondback rattlesnake. Snakes do not bother me. I have seen first hand, what some mosquitoes carry and what they can do to a once heathy human in very short order. It's true...I hate mosquitoes and always will.

Maybe it was feeding on small alligators, cast off pythons and boa constrictors among other tidbits it came across. affraid affraid affraid

Goodness! We have some pretty big rattlers here in Western Nebraska but don't want to mess with one like that. Keep those kind down there....
It is coming upon that time of year though when we will be seeing a few of them.

A few of those would give a whole new meaning to the "rattlesnake roundups" they have in west Texas. It might cause a few wranglers to take up knitting or the hundred meter dash. :lol!:

It'd be the hundred metre dash for me - in the opposite direction from the snake!
