Rattlesnake Rescue!

We are back from a week of wonderful kayaking at the Ichetucknee Springs State Park in North Florida. We had a great time and saw some wonderful wildlife. We will be posting a lot of new videos in the coming weeks about our trip and some of the interesting things we saw. We had not anticipated the encounter with the Diamondback Rattlesnake in this video, but that’s what makes getting out into nature so much fun. You never know what to expect. Most of this was shot on our last day of vacation, so we’re beginning with the end, but I think you will enjoy it. Its the largest rattlesnake I’ve ever seen and to have a part in its rescue from being trapped in a fence was a great experience. Special thanks to Sam Cole and Loye Barnard for their assistance in freeing the snake. We did not get the name of the 3rd person in the video, but he was a nature lover, so our thanks go out to him as well.

Stay tuned for more videos, but in the meantime, enjoy this snake encounter!
