Yep…… I was looking for Wild Blueberries & stepped within 6 inches of this enormous Timber Rattlesnake while hiking in the Delaware Water National Park up by Blue Mountain Lake today!!!!
If you like hiking………….. keep your eyes open!!!
NOTE- It definitely was not the smartest thing getting as close as I did to this Rattler!
They can strike about 2/3 of their total length. So a three foot Rattler could strike out about two feet. Now do the math….. this huge Rattler that I almost stepped on was close to five feet long……. See his eyes in the clip?? Very dangerous. Way too close.
