caught in Saint Augustine Florida, reported as the largest on record.
it was reported in the news at 15', the story got a lot of attention, 6' rattlesnakes are not uncommon in NE Florida.
dude with the camera is likely 6'~
How far away is the "dude" with the camera?
How big around is the aluminium pole holding the snake?
What would a 15' snake weigh?
Not looking for an argument 1911 and Hamp.
I just want reasonable answers.
I saw this same photo about 2 months ago with a reported weight of 170lb.
OK, I weigh about 170, anybody want to pick me up on the end of a 10' pole?
Look at the bow in the pole, I would wager more than one guy holding it up and in the end, I really don't care how long it was.....Big bastard though, I hate snakes.
6 ft... I've seen bigger diamondbacks in the desert. one had a jack rabbit half way down its throat. That thing was a beast! I've also seen a king snake (I think, not a rattler) that was as long as the width of the two lane road. I wouldn't doubt it was 15"
The only good snake is a dead snake, well, not our boy mr. solid snake.
Kinda goes for jihad sumbeeches too!
As I said, I don't want to piss anyone off, just want ya'll to think.
That pole would buckle under the weight of a 15' snake.
Vaquero, you got more questions than Snake. That is the 2 leged 1.
That kid can ask more damn questions than I could when I waz a kid. I can remember my Dad telli'n me " Quit ask'in so damn many ?'S!!
I asked 'why'??
It all just seemed "questionable".
I found updated information about the size of this snake it actually measured 7'3", there was a
lot of hype when the snake was found but the real details came out later.
Well for nothing else it made you think, plus you guys really know your snakes.
burmese python to me.
Thanks for the update. I've got to know snakes living and working where I do.
I aint too far from Sweetwater a lot of the time. Worlds largest Rattlesnake Roundup. Lots of damn snakes of many different kinds.
One of the locals just clued me in on a range about 3 miles from here. Gotta go check it out and see what kind of hardware to bring after the 4th!
65 lbs I am assuming....could be more.
Better than nothing!
Looks like darn good eaten to me
That skin would make a nice camo. set up for us desert folk.. That meat would make a good meal when cooked up in some butter and garlic..
ill bring the plates and potato salad lol!
