How many folks have seen Timber Rattlesnakes in CT? I have see them in Kent.

How Big?

Last summer my son almost stepped on one just past the "squeezer" as you're going up Mt. Easter (before Pine Seamp Shelter). Given his penchant for hyperbole, I think we can safely assume it was somewhat shorter than 5 feet and somewhat less thick around than a baseball bat. But by the sounds of it it was maybe 18 inches long, IOW a full-grown snake.

It was sooo cool.
