Some pictures from the Rattlesnake Derby in Mangum, Oklahoma.
Went out on a safari where the old folks that have been doing this their whole lives taught us a little about them snakes. Even got to pet one. Next stop was the butcher shop of course... The head. It will still strike at stuff even after it's chopped off. Milking the snakes to use for anti-venom. Next we got to eat some snake. Can't say it was the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. But really, probably no fried food from Oklahoma would be. The snake pit. Most delicious burger place ever. And super friendly people that work there too.
