I don't know about you but I hope this thing is gone. We don't need it running around breeding. Scary I tell ya.((( Shutters!))) This came in my email, sure looks real anyway. Either way can you imagine? OMG.
Guess what was found just south of Jacksonville... Near the St. Augustine outlet, in a new KB homes subdivision.
15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. Largest ever caught on record.
After seeing this, I did a little research, and learned the following:
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)
