Eastern Diamond Back Rattle Snake

The Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is the largest rattlesnake in the world.   Sorry, Texas, but the eastern has been recorded at a foot longer than the western.   It is, therefore, at least potentially, one of the most dangerous animals in North America.   While averaging 3 to 6 feet, they have been known to hit 8 feet even.    Stories of rattlesnakes, both from here in Florida and in Texas, of much greater length are extremely difficult to substantiate.  Diamondbacks do have a proclivity toward shrinking as they get closer to a tape measure.  Eyewitness accounts and length estimates are often very inaccurate, probably due to the amount of adrenaline involved.
If you should hear a rattlesnake, freeze, then determine exactly where the sound emanates from, then draw a mental line from that point, through your body, turn around and follow that line.  The animal is letting you know that it is there,  frightened or ticked, and if you continue to press the issue, you could well wind up with more than you bargained for.  Left unmolested, the animal will not bite, and will eventually crawl off to a less crowded area.  Continuing to remain in the presence of, or worse yet, trying to harm the snake, makes as much sense as entering a bar that caters to an ethnic group not your own, and making ethnic slurs directed at that group. But the diamond back rattle Snake will kill you and it only takes a few seconds to kill you
