I don`t believe it. That is a small man to be holding a 97lb snake like he is holding it.I also observe the object he is holding it with is small. Try holding 97lbs like that.see what I mean.

The national park service has intorduces new species of snake in the last few years. This includes water moccasins, if you ever see the whit helicopter flying over, thats them dumping them into leatherwood river.

What a big crock of crap. There is no way a rattlesnake could get that big in this county.There are too many hunters,gin singers and pot growers in the woods, someone woulda found it earlier and bragged about it.If your gonna make something up at least make it sound believable!!!

how would any of you know. one of you live in new york and would never see one any way and my dad has one not as big as that but could post a pic. why does everybody always see everthing for the worst instead of seeing it to be for real. every body in this world dont sit back to think of ways to make you look at them or for a few minutes of fame. why cant it just be that someone found a huge snake, instead of everybody tring to find the wrong in it. so what, he found a snake. get a life and dont worry about what that man does. if you dont believe it, why waste your time posting comments!

they are not introducing anything new. they are not allowed to introduce something that is not native to the area.
there are no water moccasins in scott county.
there are however brown water snakes that are not venomous and cottonmouths, both found in the water. we only have two venomous snakes here, the rattler and the cottonmouth. cottonmouths can be found in water at times, but they do not live there. to tell the difference if you think you see one in the river or wherever you may be swimming, water snakes swim under water, cottonmouths swim on top of the water.

If you think we only have 2 venomous snakes here then why don't you find a copperhead to play with & then tell us there's only 2?

This pix was not taken in the Brimstone area no way, however as a child I did see a snake about that size or bigger that someone killed in Robbins I do not know if it was a rattler or not but it was well over 7 feet long. They say there is no such thing as big snakes around these parts but they also say we don't have big cats either

Well first of all....there's no way that litlle man coud be holding that big snake..Look @ his lower hand in the pic..not even closed..97 lbs absolutely not..We used to snake hunt on Brimstone years ago and the biggest rattler we ever got was 68 inches 13 rattles and a button..now that one was real!!Scared the hell outta me and I sure wouldn't have chased it!!

That snake could weigh 30 to 40 pounds but certainly not 90, it would have to be 15 feet long to be that heavy, that snake looks more to be 7 or 8 feet long. Like the Jack above said, if it really were a hundred pounds he couldn't hold it like that, anyway. Beside that same photo shows for many states and the snake's scales are to lightly colored for an eastern diamond back, it is no doubt a western diamondback rattlesnake . Also, Indiana has a lot of trees, there are no trees in the photo showing it was no doubt taken somewhere out west.

That's a myth ain't no such thing! Me and Bobby McKnight used to go rattler hunting on Capachine years ago. Biggest one we ever got was 11 lbs.
