Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake

Be careful out there, that sunshine grows them big!!!!
 
 
THIS IS WHAT YOU MAY FIND IN THE AREA BEHIND THE ST. AUGUSTINE OUTLETS THAT ARE ON THE EAST SIDE OF I-95. NO JOKE!
 
Found on a golf course in Florida .This is why you shouldn't go looking for the golf balls hit 'Out of Bounds' in Florida !!!


THIS IS NOT A PYTHON!
This is a 15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake - the largest ever caught on record.
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 be 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 6 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 an approximately 5 1/2 foot 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?
