timber rattler boarding an MC

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/...er-aboard.html

This is in NC. I apologize if you have seen this. Wonder if it's a member here? I've run into Cottonmouths out in open water (probably fell off a boat) and Timber Rattlers just off the bank, but this one is big and looking for land. Nice boat though.

Big guy just needed a swim break and wanted to rest on a beautiful quality wakeboat. Can't blame him!

Dayum. Kudos to the dad for staying cool, and looks like the kids had on PFDs too. And can't blame the snake, that's a nice ride

There is a garter snake near our dock that is always in the water. Does that count?

I had to ski around a large eastern diamondback rattlesnake on our lake once. Fortunately, I saw it up ahead and was able to swing out to avoid running over it with my ski.
