Wish I had been there to move it!!!

I don't really believe the 9 foot quote, but I got this today in an email. Sad...

This snake was found recently near Tifton, GA across the highway from Wal-Mart and he was close to nine feet in length. He was caught behind a tractor dealership near Tifton. This is just a reminder that these creatures are actually out there no matter what you believe They should not only get prescriptive rights to be there but the full right of way!

I dont know.... if that guy is at least 5 feet tall then it would be very likely that the snake is in the 9 foot range.

I think this photo was taken using and old fisherman's trick. Notice how the guy is sticking it way out toward the camera. This will make something in the foreground appear a lot larger than it actually is.

A big EDB, for sure. 9 feet? I seriously doubt it.

And yes, Dave, it's too bad you weren't there to remove it.

And, the more I look at it, the more that looks like a WDB.

Also, that snake (unless an escapee) would not be found in GA. It's not an EDB.

Bingo - now, you've got it, JS
And I agree with your assessment of why it looks so big. Still a good sized specimen, though...too bad it was shot

I hate the fact that hes standing there smiling likes hes accomplished something great...

that photo has been around for 3 or 4 years now. Its fake as can be!! The snake is a western diamondback, so it wasnt found in Georgia! I have gotten that email numerous times over the past few years.
