“BIG” Texas Rattlesnake

Watch for the ‘big’ one next time you’re out in tall grass

A reminder that these creatures are actually out there.
No matter what you believe, sometimes they should get not only
prescriptive rights to be there, but the full right of way…
Things really are bigger in Texas!

This 9 feet, 1 inch - 97 pound rattlesnake was found on the steps
leading to the public library located south of RR 3014 Turnoff on
Highway 281 south of Tow, Texas (just west of Burnet, Texas)

Capturing a big rattlesnake in Texas

1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 teaspoon salt
dash pepper

Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and
use to dip snake steaks. Then coat them with dry ingredients.
Fry, uncovered, in 400 degree oil until brown.
