This Day in Georgia History

August 22, 1933

Record Rattlesnake Killed

Fishermen near Waynesboro killed a ten-foot long rattlesnake with a girth of eighteen inches and sixty-one rattles. While this reportedly was the largest rattlesnake recorded in Georgia until that time, it’s hard to know with certainty since rattlesnake size can be based on different standards - such as length, weight, and number of rattles. But, in the wild, rattlesnakes can grow to huge sizes.
