For those of you who want to taste the wild side of life....
From Cookin' in Texas
Find and capture a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake.
Kill, skin and remove entrails.
Cut into edible portions.
Make a batter of flour, cracker meal, salt, pepper and garlic.
Roll your snake portions in the batter.
Fry in deep fat, heated to the temperature that will ignite a floating wooden matchstick (place match in oil, when it itnites, the oil is hot enough to fry the snake).
Fry until meat is a golden brown.
