No it was a big lazy Rattle snake. He barely became alert, did not even rattle, but he had a nice set of rattles. I didn't get real close but it looked to be 7-8 rattles. I here they will be real active next week, so If I was you I would stay out of WPLP all next week. I will go down and check it out A few times next week and let everyone know when it is safe again, after I get back from the mountains next week.
