diamondback rattlesnake in florida

Lloyd was still inside of the truck and opened his door to nearly step on the snake. Wildlife officials say he’s really lucky he didn’t.

“The snake could have easily struck if he stepped on it, and that would have just been out of self-defense,” said Lisa Ricigliano with L&R Wildlife Services.

The Terrys had no idea that their photos and experience would go viral, but they’ve embraced it, hoping that nobody else has as close of an encounter with the massive serpent as they did.
