 DEEP-FRIED RATTLESNAKE

1 medium-sized rattlesnake (3-4 lbs.), cut into steaks
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and use to dip snake steaks.
Then coat them with dry ingredients. Fry, uncovered, in 400 degree oil until brown.

This snake was recently found at the J&S Quik Mart located just south of RR 3014 Turnoff on Highway 281 south of Tow Texas. [That's west of Burnett, about 30 miles from Austin]

I had no idea rattlers got so big, I bekieve from my cowboy movies they are deadly, so I spose death was the only option for that beast.

Boots would be fantastiv, I bet the skin is worth a fortune.

Our snakes are too skinny to eat, "rubbish tucker" as the aborigines say.

Pythons have a bit of meat on em, but they are protected and dont realy bite.

This from a man who lives in a country with some of the most poisionous, snakes, spiders, ants, and jellyfish.


The diamond back rattler really doesn't want  to bite you unless you do something to it. Basically they want to be left alone.

Jerry, Thanks for the story. I just thought the rattlesnake that I killed in my garden last summer was big. Now I know that it was a just a baby.

They say that it tastes like chicken. Chicken is cheap, why would anybody in their right mind eat something that looks so vile?

    Wow!   I had a six foot cottonmouth that I had to kill about, twenty-five years ago, in south Georgia before it got my Chessie pup and then turned its attention to me.  Thought it would be cool to mount so I wrapped it in a damp towel in a plastic bag and froze it in the freezer.  It was in my front door in town.  I was called for a TDY and when I returned I had forgotten about it.  Since I kept a lot of strange things in my freezer at the time it never really caught my eye.  One day after a long day fixing broke planes I had just snuggled down and just dropped off to sleep when I heard a "WHAT THE *&@$%#+*&^! !!!  Who the _____ put that in...."  By that time I had run into kitchen and my buddy who stopped by for a beer was up against the wall farthest from the fridge pale as a sheet.  He had decided see if I had any ice cream (we were both brought up in small towns and worked together for years so we were a lot like family) and saw the bag.  Thought I had some venison and wanted to see what I had left.  He thought it weird I had a frozen towel in the bag but had learned not to ask.  When he opened the bag and peeled back the towel he had not only a snake staring at him from inches away, but one with its mouth open and fangs sticking down. 


Took a little while to settle him down.  I was happy to remeber the snake and then took a while for me to stop laughing.

Nothing I've seen beats that nine plus footer though.  Thanks for reminding me.

I was able to still get it stuffed and then it was stolen about a year later.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I use to catch snakes all the time. I had all kinds of snakes. I use to deliver stuff to drilling rigs out in the oil fields. I had stopped out in the boonies to relieve my self when this cottonmouth came up out of a little pond to swallow a fish it had caught. I thought I would add that thing to my collection. It was probably six feet long. I found a good stick to pin it down with and had a burlap bag in the truck I was going to put it in. OH. By the way. This is the first cottonmouth I had seen in my life. And as I said I had caught all kinds of snakes.

I had a huge rattler that didn't like me at all. I kept him in the basement in a cage I made out of an old television console. Had glass on the front and screen on the back. You know how rattlers rattle when there is something approaching them? He would do that every time I went down the basements steps. This one time I came down the steps.... no rattle.... I peeked into the door and saw him still in the cage so I entered. Still no rattle. So I was thinking the poor thing had died and approached the cage. Just when I was with in range of the snake's strike zone, with out any warning, the thing struck at me, hitting the screen and squirted venom out about ten feet. The thing was laying for me. I decided to give it to a buddy that wanted to make a belt out of him.

Another aggressive but nonpoisonous  snake is called a coach whip. The one I had was about seven feet long and yes it would whip around when you pick it up and it would bite you if given a chance. If a nonpoisonous snake bites you, do not pull away. Their teeth curve to the back and leaves what looks like cat scratches if you yank your hand away.... only there are a lot of the scratches.

OH! Right. Back to the cottonmouth. So I had my bag and my stick and the snake had finished off it's fish. It saw me coming and headed for the water. I ran over and pinned it with the stick. the stick was too far behind the head to do any good as the snake turned around and was biting the stick. You should have seen the fangs on that guy. It was twisting and turning and wiggling and I was sure glad when I got away from that guy. I found out that day those things are vicious. If you do not have the proper equipment and the experience, do not try to catch one of those cottonmouths. It just might kill you.

Holy smokin' snakes!!!  Jerry and Rick, you both are completely and 100% out of your minds (but both your stories brought that smile to my face, along with that squeeky chuckle, hee, hee,  Wink Smiley Smiley).

I thank my lucky stars we don't have big snakes around here.  Personally, the only snake I have ever seen is that big fat ol' gardner snake that used to bask in the sun infront of my greenhouse on the gravel.  This particular greenhouse is not there anymore, nor is the old snake.  Don't know where it went, but haven't seen it in years.  Kind of sad.  Have a beautiful, greatest of days.

I've had a few snakes. We caught them up in the Everglades when I worked there for a short while. All kinds of snakes. Yellow rats, 7' long, lots of water snakes and pygme rattlers. Lots of legless lizards there too, they were cool. I was in Baton Rouge, while attending L.S.U. and was looking for a ball python. This guy had one in the paper, I wound up not buying it from him, cause it wasn't that pretty of a snake. Anyway, the guy had a 14 and a half foot Burmese python. Now that thing was big. Weighed like 200lbs. You should have seen it slither around on his floor, it was crazy. He fed it rabbits. As for as snakes pooping on you, its a defense mechanism, and yes it is foul smelling! Jerry, I've had several different types of snakes try and steal fish off stringers while fishing, some cottonmouths, mostly water snakes though. Cottonmouths are vicious, don't accidentally step on one, they are unforgiving.

Been there pooped on, JP

JP, interesting accounts of the snakes.  Now, something I don't get is -- isn't a legless lizard a snake?  How could it be anything else.  Tell that tale, hee, hee.

I can't stand snake poo, it really reaks for sure.  Been there, done that, even the little gardner snakes pack a powerful stink.  Wonder how big a big snake poo would be and how much it would stink, hee, hee.  Have a wonderful and greatest of days, Cindi
