Default .45 stopping power needed to bring this down.

I have never seen a rattler this big. Sucker measured out at 12ft and had 22 buttons. They grow 'em big at Camp Far West.

Twelve feet would be TWICE the length of a big rattler. Photoshop and or target placement is key to making things look bigger.

This is a rattle snake that was caught at Lake Don Pedro, a lake that we frequent! It was 8 feet long and had 22 rattles!


Wow.

Since the swampies take gators with .22, I doubt it.

According to my bud it was real. I should have done a bit of research. Try and trust a bud and look what happens.

First you are chopping up historic vintage rifles and sticking them in cheap and nasty looking plastic "dildo" stocks that look like some kind of futuristic sex toy that gay space aliens stick up each other's butts.
Next thing you know, you think "Deliverance" is a love story.

Buttons are the result of molting, not age. If it's eating good, it will molt more often, and have more buttons.

You are busted. 8 feet is world record for western diamond backs, the biggest bad boys I ever see are 6 foot.

look at the angle of the rod. The rattler is waaaaaaay closer to the camera than the guy is.
OP. If you got it in an email, it's not real. Everyone, let us point and laugh at spammer! Let his learn his way and one day realize that Nigerian royalty doesn't really want to give him millions.
