    Exclamation Big Snake in NC

    THEY GROW 'EM BIG IN NORTH CAROLINA
    This snake was recently found at the old Turkey Creek located just south of BURGAW, N.C.

    -- 20 MILE NORTH OF WILMINGTON

    A reminder that these creatures are actually out there and no matter
    what you believe, sometimes they should get not only prescriptive
    rights to be there but the full right of way!

    9 feet, 1 inch - 97 lbs.

    No matter what anybody else tells you, kill the snake before you try to do anything else to it!
    It's the safest way for you and the snake doesn't care anymore.

    DEEP-FRIED RATTLESNAKE



    1 medium-sized rattlesnake (3-4 lbs.), cut into steaks
    1/2 cup flour
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    1/4 cup cracker crumbs
    1/2 cup milk
    1 egg
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
    1 teaspoon salt
    dash pepper

    Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and use to dip snake steaks.
    Then coat them with dry ingredients. Fry, uncovered, in 400 degree oil until brown.

    Snake

    Yep...that was the snake from last week...and the info on it then was inaccurate...that snake was killed in Fritch, Texas and it did not weigh 93 pounds...This must be the 2006 answer to that bear pic...maybe if we post them both, we could say the bear was killed by the snake and when they cut him open he had that big culvert pipe in his stomach just full of rattlers!

    Talking optical illusion & long exposure

    notice that the handler has this stick. It is angled toward the camera.
    The stick is actually 10' long, and the snake is only 18" long.
    Some can tune a bow...
    But you can never tune a fish!

    Looks like a pretty good size rattler to me! They are beautiful snakes as long as I see it before it sees me. I usually get tons of copperheads in my yard and speaking of that, it's about time for them to start crawling...

    I killed one about that size down near Piersall, Tx (home of George Strait) while quail hunting. almost stepped on it. It was 6 ft. long and it's head was as big as my fist. It had 22 rattlers, two buttons and 6 black rings in front of the rattler. Wanted to eat it but no one in my family would fry it up for me.

    Here's a pic of my little pet.
    It's an Australian Coastal Carpet Python. He's a juvenile at about 8 months old and measures about 2 feet at the moment. Fully grown i expect about 9 - 10 feet.

    I don't mind snakes, as long as they are not near the house. They can hang out down at the barn all they want etc. and I will leave them alone so long as they leave me alone.

    I dunno, to me a reptile would make a lousy pet. They don't come when called, very hard to train to sit up or roll over and it's hard to break them of the habit of eating you if they were big enough to do so. INMHO reptiles aren't pets. They are just a wild animal you share a house with.

    I had a foot long baby prairie rattler for about two weeks, my moms nerves snapped so I took it to a conservation center and donated it so they could put it on display for kids. He was pretty cool though.

    I don't blame your Mom. Anti-venom is so darn expensive nowadays. You did realize they come fully equipped at birth right?

    trick photography, like making a 2 pound ;arge mouth bass look 10 pounds, hold it closer to the camera, it would still be a big rattler, but more like 5 feet, 9 foot would be a world record and 97 pounds on the end of a catch stick would probably bend it a little, not to mention would be extremely heavy....to bad he killed it, a live rattler this size (greater than 5 feet) would be worth a lot of money, not to mention milking it for anti-venom.
    cool picture though.
