Biggest Rattlesnake Ever

Whoa, i just got sent this.  Apparently in south Jacksonville, near the St. Augustine outlet in the new KB Homes subdivsion they found a 15 foot Diamondback rattlesnake.  That’s right, 15 foot!  Apparently it’s the biggest every caught on record.

Some facts about this snake:

  • 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.
  • 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?
