Looky what we got in Texas!
this thing was found up in Shreveport Texas under some guys Dodge Pickup.....
No, this is not a python…..keep scrolling down
> 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)
Judging by the size of the snake, it is estimated to weigh over 170 pounds. How much do you weigh?

How bad would it suck to be swallowed whole by a giant snake? It's like having a really bad dead lift day.

it was emailed to me by my uncle. I quickly did a google on it and found it posted as 3 different states (Louisiana, Florida, Texas) so I don't know what is true and what isn't but was still cool none the less...
As to how big they can actually be (that 8 foot is bull*****)
I used to live in Harper Tx (30 miles west of Fredericksburg Tx) inside of the town Cafe there is a skin of one 10 foot long. People typically kill 8 footers yearly over there and you can go and purchase them in the taxidermy anytime you feel like it. They do get quite big very easily when there is plenty of food around and not many things bigger than they are to kill them...
here is an idea of what it looks like out there..
