    Watch where you step and talk loudly so you don't sneak up and scare one!

    Shame it had to be "wasted" but I get it. That's one very large snake and would make for a very serious bite. Problem is Bruce, they are learning that rattling gives them away and often ends up with them dieing, so it's been documented that in some areas, they no longer rattle when a human approaches and "play dead" until they have no choice but to strike.

    I almost stepped right on the center of one's back while hiking in CO and he stayed dead still with no rattle (even with me messing around near him looking for a stick to try and catch him), until I prodded him with a stick. Thank god I saw him before I stepped square on him. He'd have gotten me for sure and he also had about 9 rattles. And I was a 3 mile hike to get back out to my truck. This was only about 5 years ago.

    I have a picture of our fence charger when a snake touched both connectors and got fried in place.

    Nice job on the videos.
