    I don't know how long the one I saw was but his body was about 4" in dia. He was coiled up but he didn't strike so I let him live rather than blasting him with a .45 cal snake load.

    Thats the funniest thing I've read in a LONG time. There has never been a rattle snake that big! It would be VERY hard to find something in the python family reach that size.

    Look at it this way, I was 4' away from him and you are probably hundreds of miles. Who has the best view.
    The East coast "Timber Rattler" is much heavier than those I have seen out west.

    I don't care what you imagined it to be. It may have been a huge rattler. I deal with 4 inch hose all the time. There is no way there has EVER been a rattlesnake that large.

    We grow some pretty big timber rattlers around here. It may have just swallowed somebody with a colorfull shirt.

    I killed a western diamondback in AZ in 1973 that was 5in diameter, he sorta ended up in three pieces (somehow) and was still over five feet long, I still have the rattles. Killed another that was over six ft long but not nearly as old, 13 vs 20 rattles

    ? one source claims 2 1/2 bars were recovered in 1865 '

    ? in 1876, a survey crew found bones of 3 - 5 humans, scattered in the area of a spring.


    Sorry Not gonna Give TOO many Details here. I'm not Giving up on this one yet.
    Sorry but I must be a little thick also? How about where did these sources get their information? I have everything from the libraries up that way and they have absolutely nothing before 1973. I have searched Chronicling America newspapers======Nothing. I have looked through the Pinkerton Records at the National Archives--------Nothing again. Where could I find one of the source information? I know you have a question mark out from them, so I guess you do not know the source of the information either?
