    Largest Snake you've seen?

    Saw this 6 foot bullsnake yesterday at the top of picture rock. My sunglasses on on the ground for reference. I've seen a rattler or 2 this size, but never ran across a bullsnake this big. I used to have corn snakes as pets back when I was a kid in Virginia, this is a similar snake. Cool snake. Looks like it might live in a hole in the tree, just before the top of picture rock.

    Here's a vid if you interested.

    Longest was a bull snake like yours, maybe 7' long. Fattest was a rattler out in California. As thick as my calves.

    Saw a calve-thick rattler at Hildebrand Ranch. Don't know how long it was because it was coiled up ready for action.

    Ran into a bull snake six or seven feet long and really thick toward the bottom of Sandy Wash. Seen plenty of rattlers in the three to four foot range. Saw a monster rattler at Bandolier park in NM.

    Mostly seen smaller rattlers, but I have seen bull snakes this large. I'm surprised you said you have seen rattlers this large.

    The setup is too easy, so I'll refrain.

    As my kids were walking home from the bus stop last year, they happened upon a bull snake about that size who had just gotten a hold of a bunny. For them and the rest of the kids in the neighborhood there was a teaching moment the next 15 minutes as they all just stood and watch life's circle unfold. Saw one a little smaller a few weeks ago slithering across the access road at NTM while hiking up with the kids. Which gave them another chance to describe, in detail, what they had seen earlier in the year.

    I saw one almost that size on the concrete path here in Castle Rock. It was a bull snake maybe 6'. Pretty sweet!
