Well, don't just tease us with interesting pics. Tell us the whole story. Details.

Where this happened?

Why you where there?

Were you on duty?

How did it attack you?

What kind of snake is it? (looks like a rattler of some kind)

I couldnt run away after I let it bite me! it bit my leg, so I had to get revenge, luckily it didnt even puncture skin. I was walking through that grass crap and it jumped up and bit me. I am sure it wasnt poisonous but still, it drew first blood! Its cuba by the way.


Also, as to what kind of snake, I asume that is "nathan scott phillips" My very own long bunny rabbit that I designed. hahah, good ole aqua teen.



edit- cause I need to learn to proof read.
I assume its really some kind of python

Here's a picture of one hell of a big rattlesnake. I received it in an e-mail, so I don't know any of the details.

An idea just came to mind... send those pics to PETA... I'm sure those Asshats would still find a reason not to kill it

I would get in sooo much trouble for "losing" a round by shooting, we actually tried throwing rocks, and a kevlar at it first, but when it didnt seem to care I moved in for the kill with the bayonet.


but that rattlesnake, I would run like a girl from that thing!!! If it bit you itd pump like a gallon of poison into you.

Looks like a Gopher/Bull snake , but if it is it's the biggest one I've ever seen . They usually don't grow over 8 Feet .

That's a Maja I think.

They run about 9-10 feet.

ETA: likely a Epicrates Angulifer aka Cuban Boa.

If you still can, take a photo of the head from above, the open jaws from the side, and the back from directly above. I should be able to identify it then, and whether or not it consituted a threat to you.

Had a six-foot diamond-back rattlesnake in someone's backyard a block from my house. Animal control didn't want to mess with it, so eventually a cop showed up and shot it.

Both myself and our next-door neighbors have fish ponds in our yards. Since there's a large field behind our houses with a creek, this means that water moccasins (cottonmouths) habitually show up to swim in our ponds and eat the fish. Since we spend a lot of time in our yards, have pets, and they have small children, we sort of take snakes seriously.

Neighbor came over last year and said he had a big cottonmouth in his pond and needed help killing it. I gave my dad my crossbow pistol, grabbed one of my katanas, and headed over to help out. The snake had left the pond and was hiding between the tomato trellis and the back fence. My dad missed with the first two shots, imbedding both in the fence where they were unretrievable. The third shot impaled the snake through the mid-section, and the snake wriggled under the fence into the yard of the next house over. So we headed over and knocked on the door to ask if we could go in his yard and finish off a venomous serpent. It was as we were standing there, three men armed with a crossbow, sword, and a garden hoe respectively, that I wondered what the guy would think when he opened his door. All we needed to complete the picture was some torches and a pitchfork.

Amazingly enough, he didn't even bat an eye and told us to latch the gate when we left. Then he headed inside and finished watching Archie Bunker bawl about communists.

Never found the snake again. Somewhere out there is a snake skeleton with a metal and plastic bolt through it, and there's still the other two stuck in the fence until and unless our neighbor remembers them and removes his trellis to gain access to them. Pisses me off.

I really dont care if it was poisonous, it attacked me! Normally I like snakes and think they are cool and leave them be. However, when something bites me it is done, venomous or no.

Cool snake stories and pics. Handgun shotshells are the shit for snakes, if you don't have a shotgun.

How many tries to get a direct head shot like that? Very nice!
Link Posted: 10/31/2004 11:28:03 PM EDT

Looks like that snake chose the wrong man to bite!

(like you, I don't kill just for the hell of it, but fuck all, if something tries to bite me or mine, it dies!)

Actually, if it even looks like it might be going to bite me or mine, it dies!

thats someones PET, that either escaped or was tossed into the wild when it got too big and dangerous.

dont know of any American snakes that get that long and thick bodied, especially the venomous ones. its some kind of python or boa.


now skin that sucker out and get some boots made, and a nice rifle sling.

Best snake is a dead one... Good Job.

BTW, were you staying at Marine Hill. Do they still have "post 41" ? How bout the FRA and Windjammer? I was down there with II MEF in 92 and 93 guarding Haitian migrants. We used to hunt the banana rats with bayonets. Ahhh the good ole' days

ETA: Who's the guy who took the first pic? Looks like he was too scared to get out of the turret? (Can't blame him really, just an observation).

You can't just decide that I'm drunk.....I have come to the conclusion that we need a little meatwad icon that we can pop into threads like these:

Yup. Does look like some sort of python to me.

I got it on the first shot!, err stab.

Yes we were still at Marine hill, and there was still the windjammer, though it was over run by army folk selling drugs (seriously) They are all gaurdsmen down there to gaurd the detainees.
