My brother in law was telling me that in Nebraska there was a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake that was killed in a old stripping factory that was 9 feet 1 inches long and weighed in at 92 pounds. Supposedly this "rattler" had a head as big as a grapefruit. He said his boy read it in the newspaper from his area. I don't know the area but I have done searches on the internet to find this story. I can't find it anywhere and I would think that a rattlesnake of this porportion would make nationwide news especially being a rattlesnake. Do any of you Nebraska boys know of this tale? If so, can you print the story? I'd like to read about it. I'd think a rattlesnake that big would knock a person down if it was to strike him with any force at all.
