There is a small community about 20 miles north of here - further down the San Pedro - named Cascabel. In older days, a very large ranch operation with that name was centered near there and, after a couple of visits to the area, I understand the reason for the name. Lots of rattlesnakes - rock outcroppings and great den places abound.

Good point...would be nice to have a close look at the beast to see...didnt seem like the cameraman wanted to do that! And Sonora might be a tad far north for a Cascabel..Im not sure...


But I DO know what a 7'3" Eastern Diamondback looks like!

Estas serpientes en vida silvestre no llegan a medir más de 2 mts y en cautiverio llegan a alcanzar a lo mucho 2.5 mts. Se ve grande por la perspectiva del video y los elementos que están al fondo. Lo bueno es que estaba en el parque para que no le hicieran nada

Yep. I’ve killed several six footers at the Ranch.
Hate them bastards.

Biggest I ever saw was just out of Rio Grande City. It was penned up in a rabbit hutch. I was bending over looking at it when the proprietor told me I outta step back a ways. Said if the nasty bitch struck the wire it might shoot venom into my eyes, blinding me.

Thats funny.

I've seen 2 that should hit 7 feet basically. One shot the head and part of the neck off with a shotgun, never found the head part back, but had to be close to 6 inches missing, measured 6 foot 7 inches what was left.

The other I did not get. But being we'd killed 3 over 6 feet already, this one was quite a bit bigger and substantially longer.

They eat very well. Tan well too.

I don't like small ones either. Harder to see/hear and usually more aggressive to a point. Had to move quicker a few times on 2-3 footers than I've ever had to on 5-6 footers

I feel the same about varmints... I kill enough of them, but also enjoy the fox, notes and cats out hunting making a living. Amazingly enough I've watched a lot and have only seen a fawn chased once, by a gray fox. But all varmints, including legless kinds need to be kept in check
