This is The Snake Man, Jackie Bibby. That snake! That smile! That hat!?!
I checked out the Rattlesnake Roundup last Saturday at the Community Center in Oglesby. Two bucks worth o' entertainment captured digitally follows. I must admit that I debated whether to attend this oddity. I feared they would slaughter and supper-ize the snakes (unfounded, however there were plenty of snakeskin goods available). I'm glad I went. I used to see Western diamondbacks daily at San Angelo State Park, so it was nice to reconnect with them. And as far as I could tell, the wrangling show didn't harm the snakes. And I was exposed to a piece of Coryell County culture. A piece that I most assuredly will never experience again.
His record is 8 snakes. He's shared a sleeping bag with 109 and a bath tub with 81. Guinness recognizes his feats, and so should you.
Snakeskin — Not just for boots and belts, but for touchin', too.
He's lying in a cage with about 30 or so rattlers. Oh yeah, and one's on his effin' face.
An albino cobra. Yep.
