West Texas Rattlesnake Show Coming To LA Outdoor Expo
This year at the Louisiana Outdoor Expo you will see a variety of vendors, animals and more including the West Texas Rattlesnake show. Dave Richardson brings over 20 years of snake handling to the outdoor expo as he handles some of the most venomous snakes in the world.
He said in an interview with the Billings Gazette, "I've never been bitten once but he's known other snake handlers who have and one was bitten 45 times that has been handling snakes for 39 years, he shoulda quit 44 bites ago."
The rattlesnakes can strike 125 to 150 mph and their venom can kill in a matter of minutes and can cause lifelong tissue damage so having someone who is skilled at handling these snakes is a must and no one should try this at home.
Be sure to check out one of the shows at this year's LA Outdoor Expo and Boat Show.
