Large rattlesnake startles Florida birdwatchers

Brace yourself lol.

A Bartow couple on a birdwatching trip came across something that really ruffled their feathers: A 6-foot, 100-pound diamondback rattlesnake.

"I can't even repeat what I said," recalled Cathy Terry, who was with her husband Lloyd when they encountered the snake. "It was, ‘Wow! Oh, my gosh! Look at the size of that thing. Window down! Get outta the way.’ So I took the pictures.”

"I saw this big thing going across the road,” offered Lloyd.  “Big thing. Fat.”

Lloyd is thankful he didn't step on the snake when he got out of his truck. It was close, though.

"The snake could have easily struck if he stepped on it, and that would have just been out of self-defense," said Lisa Ricigliano, the owner of L&R Wildlife Services.
