I don't care if venomous snake hunting is your thing. If you're expecting 4 and you find 100, that's gotta cause every ounce of available fluid in your body to enter your bowels.

This. They must be eating something. If the snakes were not there than what would be?

How does he know he got them all? If he found 92, I'll bet there's at least one more.

Not really. The baby ones are kinda cute. ...and a bit dangerous because they can't control their venom as well.

It's just a snake, that you don't want to fark with unless you know what you are doing/have proper gear.

The Northern Pacific isn't aggressive unless provoked.

Nah. They're just reptiles. If you treat them with respect there won't be any problems.

Exactly. it's not like a tiger, who will target you and eats human sized prey. that's scary.

People aren't rattlesnake food.  they're dangerous but neutral, like bees.

CSB... I know a snake wrangler in Queensland, who is a neighbor of one of my friends. When I'm (or... was...) down there and stay with my friend, there is of course always some sort of neighborhood cookout and he'll invite whomever is interested to see his latest acquisition. Pretty much the entirety of the guy's house is room after room filled with terrariums (terraria?) of all kinds of creatures that he's been called to grab from people's homes. Being Australia there are plenty of native species but, since Queensland is Australia's Florida, there are even more exotics.

/To the point where it makes you wonder if he breeds and distributes them to keep the business going.
//He's been bitten a couple of times. So he'll either die at age 42 or live forever.

FTFA: Wolf was impressed by the homeowner, who he said was calm about the situation.

"She told me, 'Now I know why I haven't had any rodents all these years,'" he said.


Every cloud, and all that.

"You go under the first part of the house and there's storage and then it goes into the area that's tight and you have to crawl into it and you can smell the rattlesnake smell," he said. "It's the smell of their droppings. I got in, and I smelled that and it's like when you smell popcorn and you go 'Oh!'

This gentleman needs help.

I think we have identified the potential problem.

In high school i volunteered as the assistant for a herpetologist.  He was doing a census of venomous snakes in central Va.  Mostly copperheads and moccasins with the occasional rattlesnake as we got into the mountains.  He'd catch them, I'd weight them and log the data and location.

We found a nest of atleast 20 rattlesnakes just chilling out under a bath house in a state park.  It sounded like someone started a chainsaw when we found them.  I know atleast one of us may have pooped a little bit.

Anything that screams "get away from me get away from me if you come closer I am going to bite you!!!" Isn't scary. That's what the rattle is for.

/exception: if you hear it and you are already in striking distance then it is terrifying as all Fark.

Safer than doing a census of people in central Va.

Does it taste like chicken?

When I was a kid, my mom killed a huge rattler that had gotten onto our porch. I had gone outside to continue playing after dinner and walked up on it. Surprise!

Our neighbors walked over to see it, asked us if they could have it to eat. Kid me was grossed out.

Perhaps not - there are a few animals that make waste that smells oddly like a theater.  I want to say Tigers are another one - suffice to say, if you are in a wild location and smell popcorn, Relocate.
