    Default Big Snake

    THIS ISN'T A PYTHON!



    This behemoth was found just south of Jacksonville, near the St. Augustine outlet, in a new KB homes subdivision.

    It is a 15 foot long Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake; the largest ever caught on record.

    Here are some interesting facts about a snake this large:

    One bite from a snake this large contains enough venom to kill over 40 full grown men.

    The head alone is larger than the hand of a normal sized man.

    This snake was probably alive when George H. W. Bush was President.


    A bite from those fangs would equal being penetrated by two 1/4 inch screwdrivers.

    A snake this size could easily swallow a 2 year-old child.

    A snake this size has an approximately 5 and 1/2 foot accurate striking distance. (The distance for an average size Rattlesnake is about 2 feet.)


    Judging by the size of the snake, it is estimated to weigh over 170 pounds. How much do you weigh?

    Unhappy Re: Big Snake

    WTF was I thinking when I decided to look at the pics??
    I guess I wasn't thinking... I have the biggest snake phobia in the world!!
    Got me super paranoid about doing my locates in the bushy areas now.

    The snakes are famous due to their extreme length and i was wonder to watch the snap of a 7' 3" snake which have discussed also in your post and it was really a very big snake which i never saw in my whole period of life.

    I saw one that was laid out on a truck by the logging company down here in GA that reach from the front right wheel to the left front wheel across the hood for a F350 pickup. Needless to say I did not go into the woods to take a leak. There are some might big ones down here.

    It's just a little snake. It's really a beautiful and misunderstood creature. Steve Irwin would be ashamed of all the haters. Crikey!
    I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions.
