“BIG” Texas Rattlesnake

Watch for the ‘big’ one next time you’re out in tall grass



A reminder that these creatures are actually out there.
No matter what you believe, sometimes they should get not only
prescriptive rights to be there, but the full right of way…
Things really are bigger in Texas!

This 9 feet, 1 inch - 97 pound rattlesnake was found on the steps
leading to the public library located south of RR 3014 Turnoff on
Highway 281 south of Tow, Texas (just west of Burnet, Texas)
