The Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake Florida’s Largest Venomous Snake

If you have a fear of snakes, then this article (and video below) might not be your cup of tea. In my youth while serving my country stationed at Fort Hood, in Killeen Texas, I encountered many different types of Venomous snakes, like Copperheads, Cottonmouths and Rattlesnakes. But, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is only found in the far southeastern part of the United States (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and South Carolina).

Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes average about 5.5 feet in length and the very largest specimens of the species might approach 8 feet, while one was captured in St. Augustine Florida, not all that long ago, measured in at 15ft, (that being an exceptional specimen).

This snake feeds mostly on small mammals, birds and other
