Yesterday my Dad killed a 5 1/2 foot rattlesnake in my Moms flower garden. She said if a snake that big had bitten her that she probably wouldn't have made it back in the house to call 911.Does the size of the snake affect the toxicity of its venom? In other words, if a 5 1/2 foot rattlesnake bit me would it kill me quicker than a bite from a 1 foot rattlesnake?
Thank you Jolly Thanks Eth! I had always heard the opposite, that a bite from a juvenile was more dangerous, though I could never get a clear answer as to why. Thanks for clearing that up.
But her mother, I believe, is in Georgia.
oops... yo're in Florida, aren't you. I got you muddled up with Karen.Yours could have been a small Eastern Diamondback or a Timber Rattler.What markings did it have on its back? The number of segments in the rattle gives a clue to the snake's age. How many did the snake in question have?SPAM ALERT ABOVE!!!
