This Canebrake/Timber Rattlesnake was in the woods behind our home where we walk everyday with our dogs. It was moving pretty slowly as it had just eaten. I removed it from the area and it is now back in the wild doing it's job. It was about 4-1/2 to 5 feet long. I did not measure It because it was and is still alive and was not in a good mood. It had some pink and orange coloration typical to a canebrake rattlesnake. It was strong.

Do not attempt to try to handle a live rattlesnake. Rattlesnakes can kill if cornered and are not given an escape route. If you leave them alone, they will leave you alone. I removed this one because my jack russell terriers will take on any snake they come upon and this one would have killed them. Rattlesnakes are a part of wildlife and would prefer to never encounter a human. They have a profound warning system which can be heard in the video. The buzzing of the rattles is hard to forget.
