This snake was recently found at the old Turkey Creek gas plant
located just south of the Alibates Turnoff on Highway 136 south
of Fritch Texas.
[THAT'S JUST NORTH OF AMARILLO FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW TEXAS!]


Texas Rattlesnake


Its weight was a little over 96 lbs and was over 9 feet long!!!!

Nice python. :) One of the mother's of one of my ex's had a gorgeous ball python that was like 5 ft. long, and it weighed around 40 lbs. Cute little bugger.

That's no python! Thats a MONSTER Rattler! Aside from the obvious diamond pattern in its scales... it's head shape gives away it's identity.

I'm sorry guys, I thought I put down that it was a Texas Rattlesnake. That is one bad baby.

LOL The first picture that was up there wasn't that clear, and wasn't that big. Therefore, seeing what kind of snake it was wasn't clear.

It's clear to see, now, that it is a rattler. Wonder what kind of taste that baby has? Ummmmmmmm, rattlesnake. Yummy!

Thanks for updating the pic. :)

It was teeney, and I had to use the bathroom. Amazing what that little extra liquid can do to a person when they try to concentrate. LOL ;D
