Default Rattlesnakes at the beach.

A friend an I were down in cape san blas, and on our way out to the beach there was a small rattlesnake on the boardwalk on the edge of the beach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6UJGJvvlB4

I saw one this spring at ft pickens out at the point. He was not 5ft away from the water! We tried to feed him a catfish, he didn't want it.

They've been seen swimming across from FT Pickens to Nas or the other way.

Years ago saw one by the West Jetty in Destin that looked every bit of 8'. They love the scrub brush along the beach!

There is a surprising amount of wildlife on the beach you wouldn't expect. Snakes, rabbits, armadillos, white foxes, there is even a pack of coyotes roaming around Ft. Pickens.
