I am glad I don't have to be concerned about snakes where I am at. A few small grass & garder snakes which are harmless.

We dont see to many canebreak rattlers here but have more than our share of western diamond backs, it's just one of those things we have to deal with here in South Texas. Nice snake though, my biggest rattler is 72 inches taken many years ago.

Those canebreak are some pretty snakes. Too bad they can kill you. I killed a diamondback this summer that ate a rat killed one buy it and killed a rabbit. I accidently shot the rattlers off. It was as long as my shoulders down and I am 5 10. I killed it behind my little girls swing set. SCARY.

This was a road kill picked up by a relative - makes the hair stand up on my neck! We have to worry mostly about copperheads but on a rare occasion you can find one of these - the timber rattler -

I grew up in P.A. near Morris where they have the rattlesnake round up every year. Used to catch them myself. Anyway, I've seen and caught a lot of timber rattle snakes and that one is awsome. The largest I ever caught was 52".
