Yikes! That's a big one!
Whoa. If I was in that photo with him, his head would have been detached.
Ya, what scares me is that my wife is in there every morning pulling hay out to feed........lets say she is not as observant as i would like sometimes.
I came across a couple hiking last year. The only snakes I don't care much for are the ones who's bite can really mess up your day.
The only good snake is a dead snake.
A few years back I was in Wy goat hunting and was sneaking on all 4's trying to get a shot at a good'un. I eased up to a rock pile and was looking face to face with one of them critters! Needless to say the stalk was over, as I jumped up and yelled loud enough to be heard in the next county! Definately not one of my favorite things to get up close and personal with.

If your wife is like mine no matter how many times you tell them not to wear flip flops to feed they do it anyway. Even after she was stung by a Arizona bark scorpion and we spent 3 days in the e.r for two of those days the only thing touching the hospital bed was the back of her head and the heels of her feet. She lost her vision within 20 minutes of being stung and was paralyzed within an hour. It was not fun especially when the antivenom is in another state and they won't let you use it because it's not approved by the gov. Yet she still insists on flip flops daily. Ah women!
