Nothing strikes fear in me to a greater extent than when I see or encounter a snake — any kind. This Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is mounted on a wall of a local Florida restaurant. The original owner of this restaurant has also built an adjacent riverside campground and did most of the land clearing by himself. In the process, he encountered many of the local indigenous creatures (many of which were snakes) and had them stuffed and mounted on the walls of his restaurant. Believe me, it’s the only way I want to get this close to a snake — especially this kind!
