It prob was a Timberland rattle snake. I killed a (6) footer while canoeing north of Cantonment FL yrs ago. Not very aggressive unless cornered. pigmy's are more dangerous. No rattler & very small. I killed one while cleaning out a flower bed ten yrs ago. Snake (venomous) encounters in NW FL are often rare.
I catch a few of these every yr & they are totally harmless. Bring em home and release into my garden.
