Colossal Sized Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake

This picture was taken on a cell phone at 3am. I did not have a tape nor a scale. Nor were any of us feeling energetic enough to wrestle this big boy for a length or weight. I can tell you this, I put his rattle on the ceiling and his head was on the floor. The owner tells us that it was an 8 foot ceiling. From handling my own 12 pound EDB, I think the weight of this one to be about 20 pounds. He was CB from north FL stock and is about 6 years old.
