The snake looks very long in the video, but it's hard to judge how long it really is, because it's in the foreground with the small bus behind. That makes it look a lot longer than it probably is. It appears to be a Western Diamondback. The largest recorded Western Diamondback is about 7 feet and I doubt this snake is longer than that. Regardless, it's still a big one.

You didn't notice it crawed over something on the bus?

Yep. I was thinking 12ga with duck loads or turkey loads...

Could make a belt, a hat band, and at least one pair of boots, all outta one snake...

No, it crawled over a rock in front of the bus. How far in front of the bus is hard to tell.

really pretty one... glad they had enough sense to let it live. Some of you yo yo's that go around killing every snake you see get on my last nerve. Your yard/barn/patio of course kill them. Some of you would run off the damn road trying to kill a snake.

Me too! Rattlesnakes don’t get a pass on our Ranch.
I’ve ran over them with Tractors, Plows, Bushhogs, Combines, Hay Bailers, Grain Trucks, Bulldozers, you name it ! 🤠
