* 15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. Largest ever caught on record.
* One bite from a snake this large contains enough venom to kill over 40 full grown men.
* The head alone is larger than the hand of a normal sized man.
* A bite from those fangs would equal being penetrated by two 1/4 inch screwdrivers.
* A snake this size could easily swallow a 2 year-old child.
* A snake this size has an approximately 5 and 1/2 foot accurate striking distance. (The distance for an average size Rattlesnake is about 2 feet)
* Judging by the size of the snake, it is estimated to weigh over 170 pounds (77kg)
