>>The snake in the photo is the one discussed in Werler and Dixon's 2000 Texas Snakes book. It was 63.5 inches long, if I remember correctly (don't have the book here).
>>
>>There have been a lot of anecdotal reports of bairdii in excess of 5 feet but I don't think any larger specimens have actually made it into collections. I have seen quite a few bairdii and never seen one as big as the one in that photo I posted.

thanks Chris, I wasn't sure if you would see this way down here..
yeah it's like fish...they always look larger then they truly are...My bairdi are nice sized specimens but if I was to get a true measurement on the two largest I would be surprised if they were any longer then 50 to 52 inches. If someone saw them going across a road or under a bush, though, they would swear they were at least 6 ft
