What is Hiding in the Bushes?

By
Real Estate Agent with Prestige Properties

Okay people, snakes don't bother me but this one would make me scream like a little girl.  A friend of mine sent me the photo that was taken last week on a golf course in Greer, S.C. .  All I know is it is an Eastern Diamond Back Rattle Snake.

 

                                                   

 

Update:  The picture is starting to circulate around the web and I have learned the snake weighs 97 lbs and is the largest Eastern Rattle Snake ever discovered!

Up here in the Great White North all we have on our golf courses are deer and bears

No snakes for me.
